Resolute on bringing out Muralitharan biopic, says actor Vijay Sethupathi
Tamil actor Vijay Sethupathi has defended the biopic on Sri Lankan cricketer Muttiah Muralitharan, which has stoked controversy and has said that he is resolute on bringing out the movie and that it will answer the questions of critics. Muralitharan had earlier asked Vijay Sethupathi to walk away from the project as he didn't want a fine artist to be affected by the controversy. Vijay has thanked Murali over his request. Several Tamil film personalities have been asking Vijay not to play the lead role in the ‘800’ movie claiming the cricketer had supported the then Sinhalese-led government during the civil war.
