Actor-filmmaker Rishab Shetty opens up about the rumours circulating about the ‘Kantara 2’

Since the theatrical release of Kantara, actor-director Rishab Shetty has constantly made headlines due to the critical acclaim the movie continues to receive. In the recent past, Rishab had denied reports of a possible sequel and said he would come up with an announcement once he starts working on ‘Kantara 2’. ‘Kantara’ sheds light on the origins of the divine practice of ‘Bhoota Kola’, how the ‘Daiva’ (deity) ‘Panjurli’ answers queries of the locals, and provides solutions to their problems.

Rishab and Team ‘Kantara’ recently attended the ‘Annappa Panjurli Kola seva’ (service), at which, a ‘Daiva Narataka’ (divine performer) was asked about the sequel. Umesh Gandhakadu, the 'Nartaka' who embodies the spirit of 'Panjurli Daiva', spoke to the media and said that the ‘Daiva’ gave a nod to the sequel. Gandhakadu revealed that the ‘Panjurli Daiva’ asked the makers to meet Dr Veerendra Heggade, the Indian philanthropist and Dharmasthala Temple's hereditary administrator before starting the works on ‘Kantara 2’. Apart from providing consent, the deity asked the makers to produce the sequel with utmost care.

While the reports of the divine consent are doing the rounds on social media, Rishab denied the same. In a chat with Cinema Express. “It was a Harike (vow) solely taken by our team to visit the temple, offer our prayers, and wholeheartedly thank god for the film’s success. It was an emotional and beautiful moment spent at the temple. Nothing more than that. Surprisingly, our visit led to a lot of opinions,” said Rishab about his temple visit. The ‘Kantara’ star further added, “Honestly, I am still completing my commitment with Kantara and I am yet to sit on my next project. Whatever we are planning to take up will not be a regular film; it requires a lot of time and needs strenuous research before we lock the script. It is a huge task. Whether it is Kantara 2 or any other project, we will come out with official details soon.”
