Talking about how Kantara was categorized, Rishab Shetty shared that he used all the different elements that personally inspired him. From his experience and observations watching Tamil cinema and the finer nuances of the cultures gave Kantara the shape fluid enough to penetrate the hearts of the variety of audiences who watched the film.

Giving another reason for what he thinks made the film such a big hit, Shetty said, “Thanks to OTT, people are now watching movies from all over the world, from all over the country.” He added that OTT has brought about the much-needed revolution where audiences are no longer limited to the language they are native to or know.

The success of Kantara is truly encouraging for filmmakers who are creating regional cinema with a global vocation. Interestingly, while Rishab Shetty is all excited about the opportunities now available in film, he has decided to work only in the Kannada film industry as it is his Karma Bhoomi. However, he’s all for dubbing the film into as many languages ​​as possible if it’s a hit and deserves a wider audience. We really hope to see more such projects in the future, which will blur the line between the different “woods” where movies come from and truly define what the Indian film industry stands for.
