Phailwan is being directed by Krishna who earlier made Hebbuli with Kiccha Sudeep. Expectations on Phailwan are rocketing high since their previous combo, Hebbuli, was a super hit and Phailwan will have the top Kannada star playing a fighter, which is for the first time.
Speaking about Phailwan, director Krishna had recently said that Sudeep has been training in phases to get used to it. “He will be doing a structured three-week-long course in parts. We felt that this will help him ease into the sport, to familiarize him with the basics of wrestling and boxing. Sudeep too felt that it would help him act as that character better,” the director said. Krishna also said that Sudeep and Jeet will leave for Thailand sometime soon and train hard in few interior places of Thailand which will give him a better environment to train.
