Odiyan fame Sam CS to score music for Muttiah Muralitharan biopic starring Vijay Sethupathi
We had earlier reported about Vijay Sethupathi starring in the biopic of legendary Sri Lankan cricketer Muttiah Muralitharan. The film which is said to be titled as ‘800’ will be directed by MS Sripathi. Telugu star Rana Daggubati’s banner Suresh Productions is producing the film in association with DAR Motion Pictures. As per latest reports, the film will have music composed by Sam CS of ‘Odiyan’ fame. Sam has earlier composed for Vijay Sethupathi’s other films like ‘Vikram Vedha’ and ‘Puriyatha Puthir’.
Muttiah Muralitharan is unarguably one of the greatest spinners in cricket history. A Tamilian by birth, Murali was born and brought up in Sri Lanka. He made his cricketing debut in 1992 and played for Sri Lanka till 2011. Even after 8 years from his retirement, he still holds the world record for the most number of wickets in both test (800) and one-day international cricket (534).
Murali’s biopic will be made in Tamil and released in several other languages. It has been planned to be shot in India, England, Srilanka and a couple of other countries.
