Check Out Vijay Sethupati As Muttiah Muralitharan In 800 The Movie

Tamil star Vijay Sethupati starrer 800 is out with first official motion poster and the resemblance of actor with ace-bowler is uncanny.

The official handle of Movie Train Motion Pictures dropped the motion poster and character poster on social media. They captioned it, “The journey begins! Here’s the official poster of #800TheMovie @VijaySethuOffl #MuthiahMuralidaran #MuralidaranBiopic @movietrainmp #MSSripathy #Vivekrangachari @rdrajasekar @SamCSmusic @proyuvraaj”

The film is a biopic of Muttiah Muralitharan and Sethupati essays the central role of the legendary Sri Lanka spinner. The film is touted to be a moving portrayal of Muralitharan, one of cricket's most brilliant and divisive characters.

The film will be shot in Sri Lanka, UK, Australia and India. The shoot is slated to start at the beginning of 2021 and is set to release at the end of next year.

The film will be made primarily in Tamil language. However, owing to Muralitharan and Sethupathi's popularity, the film will also be dubbed in all South Indian languages as well as Hindi, Bengali and Sinhalese. An international version with English subtitles is also being planned.

Muralitharan is the only cricketer to have taken 800 wickets in Test cricket. Besides, he also picked up 534 and 13 wickets respectively in 350 ODIs and 12 T20Is.
