Hebbuli (Kannada: ಹೆಬ್ಬುಲಿ, English: strong ferocious Tiger) is an upcoming Kannada action film directed by S. Krishna. The film features Sudeep and V. Ravichandran, teaming up for the second time after Maanikya (2014), along with Amala Paul, making her debut in Kannada cinema, in the lead roles.
Produced by SRV Productions, the film has cinematography by A. Karunakar. The soundtrack and film score are composed by Arjun Janya. The principal photography commenced in Bangalore mid June 2016, continuing in Hyderabad, Jammu-Kashmir and Iceland.
After having roped in Sudeep to play the protagonist, director cast P. Ravi Shankar to play a negative role opposite Sudeep. Since the plot required a parallel male lead to play the brother role to Sudeep, director approached actor V. Ravichandran to play the character and finalized him. Actress Amala Paul who was on the lookout for a fresh script in Kannada was signed on to play the female lead role. For the other antagonist roles, Sampath Raj, Kabir Duhan Singh and finally Ravi Kishan were selected.
