Details related to the film are still under wraps. Last month Vijay said everything is over as far as “800”, the ambitious biopic of Sri Lankan spin legend Muttiah Muralitharan, is concerned, following the controversy that erupted over the project. Muralitharan in a statement said that he had requested Sethupathi to leave the project since he is being pressured by some groups. Sethupathi was set to play Muralitharan in the biopic.
