The Kannada actor requests not to mimic ‘Daiva’ (demigod) or mock people who believe in ‘Bhoota Kola’

Kantara’s monumental success needs no introduction and Rishab Shetty, the lead actor and director of the film, has now come out with a video to announce the release of the Tulu version of the film. While expressing his delight in presenting the Tulu rendition of the movie, Rishab also shared his dismay regarding certain actions of the audiences that have caused pain to the ‘Daiva Nartakas/Aradhakas’ (divine performers that embody the spirits of demigods)

Rishab stated, “I put forth the same request once again as I did when the movie initially hit the theatres. I’ve come across people who mimic the voice or actions of Daivas on (Instagram) Reels, stage performances, and in other videos. I request such people to stop mimicking the actions of the Daiva as it is something spiritual and divine to our Daiva Nartakas. Your actions have hurt our Daiva Aradhakas since it is a reality far from acting.”

He also mentioned that the production house, Hombale Films, has time and again taken down apps that have made a mockery of the people who believe in ‘Bhoota Kola’ - the artistic spiritual form of the natives of coastal Karnataka, which helps them connect with their 'Daivas' or ‘Grama Rakshakas’ (divine protectors). “Also, I have a request to the people who do not believe in Bhoota Kola. I completely understand and respect that you do not believe in the practice as I acknowledge your belief system. However, I do not accept how certain groups mock people who believe in Kola. It’s one thing not to believe and another to mock someone who does. So, I ask such people to stop making a mockery of our practice, which is close to our Nartakas, Bhaktas, and believer’s heart.”

“If someone asks me to choose between Kantara and Daiva, I will choose the latter. If not for the blessings of the Daiva, we (Team Kantara) wouldn’t have tasted the stupendous success that we have,” said Rishab while getting up and personal about Kantara’s Tulu version’s release.

While the movie has commenced its OTT run on Prime Video in several languages, except for Hindi due to the eight-week Theatre-OTT deal, ‘Kantara’ continues to run strong at the Hindi box office and has commenced its Tulu theatrical run today. Check out Rishab’s video Tweet below.
