First look of 800 is out

Vijay Sethupathi is playing Sri Lankan spin legend Muttiah Muralitharan in his biopic titled 800 directed by Sripathy. Muralitharan launched the first-look poster of the film Tuesday.

‘Once the script was ready, we thought the best fit for this movie was non-other than Vijay Sethupathi. I think he is a very talented actor and he will nail my bowling expressions. I trust Vijay completely as he is one of the greatest actors and I have complete faith that he’ll definitely do wonders to the film’, said Muralitharan.

Vijay Sethupathi, who is excited to play the role, said, ‘It’s really nice to listen to his story and spend time with Murali sir. He is like a stamp, he makes a mark wherever he goes with his charming character and personality. I love his real life because fans have seen him in matches on the field, but very few have got a chance to know Murli sir’s personality off the field. He’s such a beautiful person and his story needs to be told.’

The film is produced by Movie Train Motion Picture & Dar Pictures.

Music of the film is by Sam CS and cinematography by RD Rajasekar.
