Muthiah Muralitharan’s biopic 800 Motion Poster is out. Directed by MS Sripathy, 800 will feature Vijay Sethupathi as the Sri Lankan spin legend.
The video is like a graphic novel, which is what we might expect from the film. It suggests that 800 would be set against the backdrop of the civil war that devastated Sri Lanka for nearly three decades. We see Muralitharan recognize his passion for cricket, undergoing training and have become a world-class spin legend amidst wars and hardships.
Talking about the upcoming film, Muttiah Muralitharan had earlier said, “I feel honored that a skilled actor like Vijay Sethupathi will play me in the film. I have been actively collaborating with the creative team for the past several months, and I will continue to support this project through its duration. ”
He said, ‘I am happy that Murali himself will be associated with this project and will guide me on the aspects of cricket. I am thankful to both Murali and the producers that he believed in me.
800 was announced in July, and the producers originally planned to release the film by the end of 2020. However, that was before the havoc of COVID-19.
Muthiah Muralitharan’s biopic will be shot in Tamil, but the makers plan to release the film in many languages across the world.
