Is Kantara 2 possible?
Rishab Shetty’s ‘Kantara’ has turned out to be a massive hit at the box office. The film has broken several records previously held by Yash’s KGF franchise and Prabhas’ ‘Baahubali’ series.

After experiencing huge success all over the country, fans are now expecting Rishab Shetty to come up with a sequel for Kantara. When asked about the same, Rishab told IndiaToday, “No comments,” followed by laughter. “I don’t know what’s going to happen next. Now, I already have good offers from Hombale films. I am going to work with them more because of the way they have made sure our rooted story reaches the entire country.”
The film’s success
Rishab Shetty also said why he feels Kantara struck a chord with the audience. He said that he doesn’t believe in the pan-India concept but believes the more regional the concept is, the more global reach it will get.
