Director S Krishna is more than happy to get back to direction with his next, in which he will be collaborating with Sudeep. Work on Hebbuli is likely to start from May first week. While they are getting the star cast ready, there was some uncertainty over the female lead. While many names, from Sandalwood and other south Indian film industries, have been doing the rounds, a little birdie says that the makers have finally zeroed in on Amala Paul.

According to sources, they have approached the actor and are now working on the dates and other formalities before making an official announcement. If everything goes as planned, Amala will be paired opposite Sudeep for the first time in Hebbuli.

Amala.jpgReportedly, Amala, who was waiting for the right kind of a script for her debut in Kannada, has liked Hebbuli’s and is also keen on working with Sudeep. “Expectations from Hebbuli were skyrocketing and after having Nithya Menen in Sudeep’s Kotigobba 2, Kiccha fans want to see their star with a popular face while the team was looking for a good combination and an actress who can justify the role. So after many searches, they thought Amala fits the bill,” says our source.

With the team setting a deadline to kickstart their project, a final decision will be taken in a day or two about the heroine.

Hebbuli made under SRV Productions in association with Umapathy Films promises an interesting star cast, which will be revealed as they start shoot.
