Bharathiraja requests Vijay Sethupathi to opt out of Muthiah Muralitharan’s biopic
The latest movie of Vijay Sethupathi is mired in controversy. Several Tamil film industry personalities gave a call for boycotting the film 800. The flick is based on the life of Sri Lankan cricketer Muttiah Muralitharan. Vijay Sethupathi is playing the role of Muralitharan in the biopic. Tamils are opposing the film as Muralitharan took a stand in support of the then government during Lanka’s civil war. A trolling with tag ‘Shame on Vijay Sethupathi’ has been going on social media. Noted Tamil director Bharathiraja has written an open letter to Sethupathi advising him to opt out of the biopic.
