it was earlier confirmed that Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi will start shooting for the Muthiah Muralidharan biopic in 2020. The film will be helmed by Sripathy Rangasamy and is produced by DAR studios and jointly produced by Rana Daggubati who plans to make the film on a large scale.
The film is tentatively rumored to be titled as 800 which is the number of wickets the bowler has taken in Test Cricket. The film will be made in multiple languages and might hit screens by the end of next year.
Speaking about the film, Vijay Sethupathi thankes Muralitharan and the producers for trusting him with the project. Muttiah Muralitharan himself will work alongside Vijay Sethupathi to shape the film.
It is now rumored that the ‘God Of Cricket’ Sachin Tendulkar might play a cameo in the film. The two cricketers share many memorable moments on the field and it looks like Sachin might play in one such scene in the film. However, the makers have not made any official announcement about the latest rumor.
