Vijay Setupathi to turn as Muttiah Muralitharan
Versatile Tamil actor Vijay Sethupathi is going to play an exciting role in his career after the one he did in 'Super Deluxe' recently. In the biopic of Muttiah Muralitharan which will be directed by MS Sripathy, Vijay Sethupathi is all set to star as the Sri Lankan legendary spinner.
Talking about the project, Vijay said, “I am happy to be associated with the Muttiah Muralitharan biopic. He is an iconic sportsman of Tamil origin and someone who has made his mark across the world. Portraying the role of Murali is going to be a challenge for me and I am looking forward to it.”
For this movie, Murali will be closely associated with 'Makkal Selvan' and will guide him on cricketing techniques. “I am honoured that an accomplished actor such as 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,” said Muralitharan.
