While the cricketer’s success after battling various challenges is an excellent subject for a film, some Tamil nationalists target Muralitharan for failing to acknowledge the struggles of the Tamils in northern Sri Lanka during the 26-year civil war.
Muralitharan is the highest wicket taker in test cricket with 800 wickets, and the film is called “800”.
However, in a statement released on Friday, Murali asked if it was his fault for being born a Sri Lankan Tamil. “When the production house approached me about the film, I initially hesitated to nod. I then thought the film would highlight my parents’ struggle, the contribution of my coaches and teachers, and everyone who was part of my journey. My family had their humble beginnings in a tea estate in Sri Lanka. The hardest hit people in Sri Lanka’s 30-year civil war were the Hill Country Tamils. Our life began in a zone of conflict. The film ‘800’ tells how I overcame all these hurdles and managed to be successful in cricket. Is it my fault that I was born a Sri Lankan Tamil? “Said Muralitharan.
The first poster and trailer of the biopic, titled 800, starring Tamil star Vijay Sethupathi Muralitharan, was released on Tuesday. Shortly after the project was announced, #ShameonVijaySethupathi started trending on Twitter on Wednesday and Thursday.
