Biopics are ruling the Bollywood film industry and the neighboring Tollywood industry also tasted the success with Mahanati, the biopic of legendary actress Savithri. Now, Kollywood's one of the busiest stars Vijay Sethupathi is said to be approached to play Sri Lankan cricketer Muttiah Muralitharan in his biopic.

Born in Tamil family, Muralitharan holds the record for the most wickets in both one day international and test cricket. Muralitharan's grandad was settled in Trichy and the cricketer also married Madhimalar of the famous Malar hospitals in Chennai.

Despite having strong Tamil background, Muralitharan played for Sri Lanka and brought a lot of laurels to the country with his cricketing talent. Sources say that talks have been already initiated and if all goes well, the shoot for the biopic will go on floors by the end of this year.
