Yash is all set to headline director Puri Jagannadh's ambitious project, Jana Gana Mana. The 33-year-old actor, who won rave reviews for his portrayal of Rocky in KGF Chapter 1, will apparently be seen in a 'powerful and ruthless avatar' in the film. Initially, Mahesh Babu was supposed to star in Jana Gana Mana but backed out of the project at the last minute due to undisclosed reasons. 

"Puri always wanted to make Jana Gana Mana keeping the pan-India audience in mind. The story is a take on the gruesome murders, rape cases and crimes that shook our nation over the last few years. The director sat twice with Yash to discuss the script in Bengaluru, and the duo will meet again soon for the final narration," informs a source.

In all probability, a leading production house from South India will bankroll Jana Gana Mana, which is going to be shot in Telugu and Kannada, and later dubbed into Hindi and Tamil.

While Yash is shooting for KGF Chapter 2, the sequel to 2018's KGF, Puri is planning to helm Double iSmart, a sequel to his latest release, iSmart Shankar.
