Actor Rana Daggubati is all set to co-produce another film. However, movie production is definitely not a new field for Rana, who comes from a family that produces the highest number of films in a year. We are talking about none other than Suresh Productions.
But, how many of you know that Rana himself owns a production house and that he has named it Spirit Media? He has produced a couple of films under this banner. Now he is all set to produce one more film.
Rana is going to co-produce a biopic on Muttiah Muralidharan, the spin legend from Sri Lanka. None other than Tamil star Vijay Sethupathi is playing the lead role in this biopic. But this film is going to be produced under Suresh Productions (not under Spirit Media) in association with Dar Films.
Announcing this news on social media, Rana Daggubati tweeted: "Suresh Productions and I are proud to be associated with Dar films in telling the story of a legend through a legendary actor. Vijay Sethupathi as Muttiah Muralidharan soon!" (sic)
Sri Lankan legend Muralidharan holds the record for most wickets in One Day Internationals as well as Test matches. After his retirement, he started his career as a bowling coach in 2014.
Vijay Sethupathi told news agency IANS: "I am happy to be associated with the Muthiah Muralitharan biopic; he is an iconic sportsman of Tamil origin and someone who's made his mark across the world. Portraying the role of Murali is going to be a challenge for me and I'm looking forward to it. I'm delighted that Murali himself will be closely involved with the project & guiding me on the cricketing aspects. I am thankful to both Murali and the producers for the faith bestowed on me."
