Tamil actor Vijay Sethupathi has withdrawn from "800", a biopic on Sri Lankan cricketer Muttiah Muralitharan and his record of being the first bowler to take 800 Test wickets, following fierce and widespread criticism from political leaders and others in the southern state over his portraying a man who "played fiddle when Lankan Tamils were dying". Mr Sethupathi's exit from the film follows an appeal by the cricketer himself; Mr Muralitharan said he did not wish for a top artist to be affected because of him.
