Vijay Sethupathi, who will be seen playing Sri Lankan cricketer Muttiah Muralitharan in the upcoming biopic, 800 is being trolled mercilessly on social media. 800 was announced in July this year but the makers released the motion poster only a day ago. However, the upcoming biopic has hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Twitterati are targetting Vijay Sethupathi for playing the role of Muttiah Muralitharan. Hashtags like #ShameOnVijaySethupathi, #BoycottVijaySethupathi are trending on Twitter as a certain section of the audience is upset of him playing Sri Lankan spinner. 

However, there are a lot of people and fans who are supporting Vijay on social media. As an actor, Vijay Sethupathi has his own rights to choose whatever films he wants to, stated a Twitter user. The other twitter user wrote, "As an artist, Vijay Sethupathi has every right to choose his films. Muthiah Muralidharan was a cricketer not a murderer or a politician who was at power during Tamil eelam massacre. So there's no point trending #ShameOnVijaySethupathi." 

Check out what Twitterati have to say: 









The motion poster of the Muttiah Muralitharan biopic 800 was released recently and it has received a mixed response. Directed by MS Sripathy, Muttiah Muralitharan biopic will be shot in Tamil.
