Rishab Shetty, the star filmmaker and actor behind the creation of Kantara, recently made notable revelations during the IFFA54 press conference. He emphasized his dedication to the Kannada film industry and expressed his commitment to focusing solely on Kantara for the time being.
Despite receiving tempting offers for projects in other languages and regions, Rishab firmly stated his allegiance to Kannada cinema. Acknowledging these offers as valuable opportunities, Rishab conveyed his heartfelt gratitude to the Kannada audience for propelling Kantara to such remarkable success.
He humorously dismissed the notion of leaving the Kannada industry after achieving one significant hit, emphasizing his intention to produce exclusively in Kannada. Rishab emphasized that while his films are rooted in Kannada, their themes and content possess a universal appeal with a potential global reach.
The recent unveiling of Kantara’s first look poster received an overwhelming response, amplifying the excitement surrounding the film, which is also in contention at IFFI Goa. Rishab’s vision revolves around creating Kannada films that transcend linguistic barriers through careful dubbing techniques, ensuring that the intended emotions and essence resonate universally, reaching audiences far beyond Karnataka.
