We all know that Vijay Sethupathi will be acting as the legendary Sri Lankan spinner Muttiah Muralitharan in the latter’s biopic. Titled 800, the film will be directed by MS Bhoopathy. Sam CS who directed music for Vijay Sethupathi’s Vikram Veda and Puriyatha Pudhir, has been reportedly roped in to score music for 800. If the reports turn out to be true, it will mark the music director's third collaboration with Vijay Sethupathi. More details about the film are expected to be announced officially soon.
Talking about the film, Vijay Sethupathi had earlier said in an interview with The Times Of India that he has never even watched cricket. The English daily quoted him as saying, “I don't even watch cricket. The sport does not make me excited and it makes me feel bored. So I have not watched cricket even as a child. In fact, I even told this to Muttiah Muralitharan sir and he immediately told me that is the perfect quality for me to play the role."
