The no-ball controversy involving Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan will figure in his biopic ‘800’, according to Sethumadhavan, the COO of DAR Motion Pictures.   


The legendary spinner had a tough time during his tour to Australia in 1995/96 for a three-Test series. 
Umpire Darrell Hair no-balled Muralitharan seven times in the match. 


“This incident will figure in this movie,” Sethumadhavan, told the Daily Mirror yesterday. 


“Relevant international actors who suit the portrayal of the two umpires - Darrell Hair and Ross Emerson will be featured in the film.” 


Muralitharan had a congenital deformity, which did not allow his elbow to be straightened. 


“We will also find the actors who can play the role of Daryl Foster and other Australian cricketers. Foster and his team had tested Murali’s bowling action at the laboratory.”  


“The shoot of the film will be from respective locations, to make it look authentic and reduce the costs,” he added. 
Vijay Sethupathi, an Indian actor who will be playing Muralitharan’s role has already begun doing his homework. 
“Both Murali and Sethupathi appeared simultaneously from Dubai and India during the launch of the biopic, which was shown live before the Indian Premier League match on Tuesday.
