Box office sensation 'Kantara' en route to Oscars, makers say, “Hope It Can Find A Voice Worldwide”

SS Rajamouli’s RRR has finally entered the race with “Naatu Naatu” being shortlisted in the best song category. It is now among the 15 songs which have been selected out of 81 in total. Surprisingly now, Rishab Shetty’s much-loved film Kantara is also trying to get a spot at the prestigious Academy Awards aka Oscars. The film minted over Rs 400 crore worldwide and became the most watched and talked about film of 2022. 

Written and helmed by the lead actor Rishab Shetty, the film was originally released in Kannada. Amazed by the tremendous response to the film, the makers decided to dub the movie in different languages. 

In an exclusive chat with IndiaToday.in, ‘Kantara’ producer, Vijay Kirgandur (of Hombale Films) confirmed the same and said that the team is hopeful although they sent in the application at the very last moment.

"We have submitted our application for Oscars for Kantara and have our fingers crossed as the final nominations are yet to be announced. Kantara as a story is so rooted that we hope it can find a voice worldwide as well."

Earlier, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi, starring Alia Bhatt, had also started its campaign for the Oscars.
