Interacting with Vijay Sethupathi on Star Sports Tamil in a show hosted by Bhavna Balakrishnan, cricketer Muthiah Muralidharan said that Vijay Sethupathi is the perfect choice to play his character in the biopic 800.
"Vijay Sethupathi's facial features are similar to mine. He is an excellent actor who can brilliantly act in any character. The film has a lot of emotional moments and one must work hard, I think Sethupathi can pull it off", said Muthiah Muralidharan.
Vijay Sethupathi said: "When I first met Muralidharan sir, told him that I don't know anything about cricket. During my childhood, kids would ask me to fetch the ball in the ground. He said that this is the perfect qualification to play his role. I liked his approach".
The motion poster will be out today during the pre-match episode in Star Sports Tamil. To be produced by Dar Motion Pictures, MS Sripathy will be helming the biopic and Sam CS has been roped in to compose music.
