Kannada movie, Kantara directed and acted by Rishab Shetty had a magnificent run at the worldwide box office.
As per the trade reports, this devotional backdrop film has collected a gross of Rs 400 crore globally.
Along with the original Kannada version, the film’s Telugu and Hindi dubbed versions performed extremely well at the ticket windows. Meanwhile, a few weeks back a case has been logged in on the unit as an unexpected scenario.
Reportedly, the devotional song, Varaha Roopam tune that we have witnessed in Kantara is a copy of one of the Malayalam songs and regarding the same, the original music label come out and went for a legal battle against Kantara music composer B Ajaneesh Loknath, director cum actor Rishab Shetty and production house Hombale Films.
Looks like the fight by a Malayalam music band has won in the court hall as the Varaha Roopam tune which we have witnessed in the theaters is changed in the OTT version.
On November 24th, Kantara’s Kannada, Telugu, Tamil, and Malayalam versions were released on the popular OTT streaming platform Amazon Prime Video.
As the cop tune is changed netizens are congratulating Thaikkudam Bridge, a Kerala-based band that claimed that the makers of Kantara stole their song without permission.
Even after releasing on digital space, will Kantara continue to mint revenues at the ticket windows? Needs to be seen.
Alongside Rishab Shetty, Kantara also stars young beauty Sapthami Gowda, Kishore, and Achyuth Kumar among others in prominent roles.
