Vijay Sethupathi is all set to play the part of Sri Lankan cricketer Muttiah Muralitharan on screen in the latter's biopic.
In an interview with a leading daily, Vijay Sethupathi confirmed the project saying, “Muralitharan is an iconic sportsman of Tamil origin; he’s someone who’s made his mark across the world. I am sure portraying Murali is going to be a challenge for me. But I’m looking forward to it. I am delighted that Murali himself will be closely involved with the making of the film and will be guiding me on the cricketing aspects”
Muralitharan reacted to Vijay playing him on screen. He said, “I am honoured that an accomplished actor like Vijay Sethupathi will be playing 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. We are looking at a late 2020 release.”
Reportedly, the film will be made in Tamil and released in several languages.
