The production company behind the mega-hit Kannada film Kantara, Hombale Films, has declared that actor and director Rishab Shetty is currently working on the prequel to Kantara, which will explore the folklore that is depicted in the first movie. Vijay Kiragandur, the founder of Hombale Films, stated this in a recent interview. The movie will once again be directed and starred by Rishabh Shetty.
He added that Rishab is conducting research in the forests of Karnataka’s coastal region for the movie. The team intends to begin filming in June during the monsoon because some scenes call for rain, according to the report. By April or May of 2024, the film will get a pan-Indian release.
Kantara, which was released in September 2022 in the Kannada language, became a pan-India hit and was then dubbed in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam. Prime Video acquired Indian and select international rights to the south Indian language versions of the movie, while Netflix has the English and Hindi versions.
