Reports are rife that Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi has been signed for the biopic of Sri Lankan off-spin legend Muttiah Muralitharan, who holds the world record for the most wickets in both test (800) and one-day cricket (534).
“We will begin filming in December 2019. It’s a big-budget film that will be shot in India, Sri Lanka, England and other parts of the world,” reported Gulfnews. Sources say the movie has been titled 800 and will focus on Muralitharan’s spectacular achievement in test cricket when he took his final wicket in the last ball of his last match before retirement.
More details about the cast and crew are awaited via an official announcement.
