Actor Vijay Sethupathi took to social media to share the first look poster of his next film, the biopic of legendary spinner Muthiah Muralidaran.
The project was supposed to go on the floors last December. However, it was postponed for reasons yet unknown.
On being signed for the project, Sethupathi said in a statement: “I am happy to be associated with the Muthiah Muralitharan biopic; he is an iconic sportsman of Tamil origin and someone who’s made his mark across the world. Portraying the role of Murali is going to be a challenge for me & I’m looking forward to it. I’m delighted that Murali himself will be closely involved with the project & guiding me on the cricketing aspects. I am thankful to both Murali & the producers for the faith bestowed on me.”
Vijay Sethupathi was last seen in Ka Pae Ranasingam alongside Aishwarya Rajesh.
