An international artist was called to make Sudeep look like Captain Raam. His biggest challenge was the short hair with a small ponytail look that he had to carry along throughout the film. However, this look worked in his favour when the hairstyle went viral and was seen sported by thousands of fans.

Hebbuli is one of the best action films in Kannada that I have come across until now. Directed by S. Krishna, Hebbuli displayed the makings of an unforgettable story.

The port area in Mangalore as can be seen in the film was selected for shooting the climax. The idea was to portray the villain’s vast empire that he gained through corruption. Giving the scene a rich look, the port of the town was probably the best location that could have been chosen.

3. Sudeep impressed everyone with his culinary skills in Kashmir
