A day ago the makers of the biopic of Sri Lankan cricketer Muthiah Muralidaran shared the first look poster of Vijay Sethupathi as the cricketer. The film titled 800 landed itself in trouble post the poster release after a section of people protested against the film. The makers, Dar Motion Pictures, clarified that the film will focus only on the cricketing journey and not make any political statement.

After ‘Shame on Vijay Sethupathi’ trends, makers of Muthiah Muralidaran biopic release official statement clarifying that the film does not make any political statement

On Wednesday, the hashtag ‘Shame on Vijay Sethupathi’ was trending on Twitter as the actor agreed to be a part of the biopic of Muthiah Muralidaran who hails from Sri Lanka, a country that oppressed Tamilians. Those people protesting objected to the fact that the actor agreed to play someone who supported the Sri Lankan government in its war against Tamils.

Following the objection raised by people, the makers released an official statement. “It came to our notice that our film “800”, the biopic of Muthiah Muralidharan featuring Vijay Sethupathi in the lead, is being politicized in many ways. However, we want to clarify that 800 is a purely a sports biography film about the legendary cricketer Muthiah Muralidharan. The film is a journey about a man who hails from the Tamil migrant community, going on to become the highest wicket taker of all time,” the statement read.

“The film does not make any political statement favouring any community. The film is intended to be an inspiration for the young generation to achieve their dreams irrespective of the difficulties they come across in their journey. We as the producers assure that this film will not showcase any scenes that would belittle the struggles of Eelam Tamils in Sri Lanka or hurt their sentiments in any way,” they added.

“On a positive note, the film will engage the Tamil film community in Sri Lanka providing the artists and technicians a platform to showcase their talents on a global stage. Art is beyond boundaries; it unites people all across. Artists belong to the world. We wish to spread only positivity, love and hope,” they wrote.

Meanwhile, the film directed by MS Sripathy is slated to go on the floors from February or March 2021.
