After wrapping up forthcoming Kannada movie "Mukunda Muraari," Sudeep has now moved on to his much-delayed project "Hebbuli." Kiccha has collaborated with Krishna, who had earlier helmed Yash's hit flick "Gajakesari" for his latest film.

Sudeep tweeted, "One long schedule fr Hebbuli wil be starting soon n wil b completing sm major portions..Joining Kali frm June end fr my 1st schedule. [sic]"

The Kannada movie was announced 18 months ago but the shooting could not start due to Sudeep's other commitments. Speaking to the Times of India, the "Huccha" star has revealed that the delay has been good for the flick as the director got ample time to work on the story.

"Also, we required Sudeep to be completely free of all other film commitments before starting off on this as he will be portraying a very different look in this film. As an army personnel, he will have to look like one — in terms of hairstyle and the way he dresses," the daily quoted director Krishna as saying.

A hairstylist named Ashwin, who had earlier worked with Telugu stars like Junior NTR and Allu Arjun, is giving a new look to Sudeep in "Hebbuli." Krishna claims that he has put in a lot of effort to showcase the actor in a different way in the flick.

"Hebbuli" is a big-budget flick that revolves around a social issue. The team has planned a lengthy 130-day schedule of shooting, which begins shortly. Sudeep plays the role of a para commando in the Kannada movie.

The film will be shot in places like Ballari, Mysuru, Hyderabad and Bengaluru, apart from filming songs in Norway and Iceland.
