Muralitharan biopic row: Actor Vijay Sethupathi’s daughter gets rape threat
Tamil actor Vijay Sethupathi has walked out of Muttiah Muralitharan's biopic 800 due to societal pressure. But, the issue is far from over as trolls issued rape threats to the actor’s daughter on social media.
Replying to a tweet posted by Vijay Sethupathi, a troll made a distasteful remark of raping his daughter so that the actor would understand the pain of Eelam Tamils. Many netizens slammed the troll for his vile comment and reported it. Muralitharan himself has requested the actor not to play the lead role in his biopic.
