Originally it was decided to make this film with famous Tamil actor Vijay Sethupathi. However, Vijay Sethupathi’s acceptance of the film led to severe opposition in Tamil Nadu. The people of Tamil Nadu did not accept Vijay Sethupathi playing the role of a Sri Lankan cricketer who massacred Tamils. With this, Vijay Sethupathi left the project. With this, Madhur Mittal was brought into the field. However, it is remarkable that the Telugu producer has secured the distribution rights of this film.
The distribution rights of ‘800’ Alindia have been acquired by popular producer and head of Sridevi Movies Sivalenka Krishnaprasad. This film made in Tamil will be translated and released in Telugu, Hindi and English languages. The whole team of the film worked hard for a year and a half and made the film. Shot in Sri Lanka, England, Australia, Chennai, Cochin, Chandigarh. It is a film made with huge production cost.
Producer Sivalenka Krishnaprasad reacts to owning the distribution rights of such a great film. By overcoming such conditions, Muralidharan holds the world record of taking 800 wickets. All his struggles and his journey from childhood will be in the film. I feel lucky to get a chance to distribute such a film in India. Last year I released the movie Yashoda in Allindia and got success as a producer. Now I am very happy to have the opportunity to distribute 800 nationally. Filming has been completed. Post production works are also being completed. Re-recording and graphic works are in final stage. We are preparing to release the trailer in September and the film in October.
