Sri Lanka's offspinner Muttiah Muralitharan is going to be the subject of a biopic film. Actor Rana Daggubati will produce the film.
The film will be produced under Daggubuti's banner Suresh Productions. Actor Vijay Sethupathi will play the role of the spin legend in the film.
Rana Duggubati said that Sethupati was very excited about being in the film. The co-producer of the film is Dar Media Pvt. Ltd.
Rana said in a statement, "Suresh Productions, along with Dar Films, is going to tell the story of a legend with legendary actor Vijay Sethupati. The movie is coming soon. "
It is speculated that the movie will be named '800'... Muralitharan took 800 wickets in Test cricket, a world record.
Born in Kandy in Sri Lanka in 1972, Muttiah Muralitharan debuted in 1992. And in nearly 20 years as a player, he played 133 Tests, 350 ODIs, and 12 T20 Internationals. In 2011, he retired from cricket. His team won the World Cup in the 1996.
Muralitharan's bowling action was controversial because of being born with a bent elbow. Actor Sethupathy will find it difficult to mimic his action.
