Kollywood’s versatile actor Vijay Sethupathi will be doing Muttiah Muralidaran's biopic titled 800. The film was announced officially with a poster yesterday. Soon after the poster was out, netizens expressed their dislike over the project by trending the hashtag #ShameOnVijaySethupathi.
Apparently, several netizens are not happy with Vijay Sethupathi playing the Sri Lankan cricketer on screen as he hails from the country that oppressed Tamils. Many pointed out that the Sri Lankan government was responsible for killing thousands of Tamils and treating them as minorities in the country. Director Seenu Ramasamy, too, requested Vijay Sethupathi to reconsider his decision of doing the film.
Here are some comments against Vijay Sethupathi:
