Kantara for Oscars

The Queen actress has praised filmmaker-actor Rishab Shetty for giving such a great film to the Indian cinema. She shared a video message after exiting the theatre and also shared a note, calling it an Oscar nomination-worthy film from India.


On Friday, the actress turned to Instagram stories to praise Rishab Shetty’s flick. She wrote, “I feel #Kantara should be India’s entry to Oscar next year, I know the year is yet to end and there may be better films coming, but more than Oscar India needs the right representation globally… this land of mysteries and Mystics one can’t understand one can only embrace it …. India is like a miracle… if you try and make sense of it you will only get frustrated but if you surrender to the miracle you can also be one …. Kantara is an experiential reality which world must experience .. @rishabshetty77.”
