|Occupation||Actor / Director/ Environmentalist|
Suresh Heblikar (Kannada: ಸುರೇಶ ಹೆಬ್ಳೀಕರ) is a Kannada filmmaker, director and actor. He is also a well known environmentalist, founding the Eco-Watch NGO in 1998. He has produced many noteworthy movies in Kannada of which Kadina Benki won Best Director national award and Usha Kiran the Filmfare award. His films are known to have an offbeat theme where "passionate romance" is portrayed. This is attributed by him to a very romantic childhood. His movie themes also involve psychosis and scientific temperaments — which Heblikar humbly attributes to his association with producer and psychoanalyst Dr. Ashok Pai. Being an environmentalist himself, his movies depict nature and conservation.
