Rishab Shetty May Be Trending For Kantara, But This Actor Is Still No 1 Star, Reports

The year 2022 has seen several Kannada films which became some of the biggest grosser in the entertainment industry. However, among all the films that did well at the box office, Kantara received a lot of love from fans around the world, but surprisingly, this popularity did not make Rishab Shetty the most popular male star for the month of October.

Popular male star

Kannada films have ruled the entertainment industry in India this year like never before. 2022 has seen several Kannada films which became some of the biggest grosser in the entertainment industry. Notable among them are Yash starrer KGF 2, Kichcha Sudeep’s Vikrant Rona, Rakshit Shetty starrer Charlie 777, and of course, Rishab Shetty’s Kantara which is still running in the theaters.


According to Ormax Media, the analytical firm that tracks the popularity of entertainment earlier today shared a list of male Kannada stars and rated them on their popularity. According to the firm, it is KGF star Yash who still rules the list, coming in at number 1 among popular male Kannada stars.

The second place is taken by Vikrant Rona star Kiccha Sudeep, while veteran actor Darshan is at number 3. 777 Charlie star Rakshit Shetty has been ranked at number 4.

Rishab’s highest ranking

Rounding off the top 5, interestingly, is Kannada star, Rishab Shetty. Despite the film raking in excellent reviews from all over the country, it seems that Rishab Shetty has not been able to top Yash’s popularity among the audience.


The analytic firm also pointed out that Rishab coming in at number 5 is his all-time highest ranking among Kannada stars.


Meanwhile, earlier today, the actor took to social media to celebrate the successful completion of 50 days of Kantara at the box office. The actor-writer-director celebrated 50 days of Kantara at theatres with a heartfelt social media post thanking folk deities Panjurli and Guliga Daiva.

He tweeted, “A moment of divine celebration for us. Thanks to everyone across the globe. It was accepted, owned & lived by each one of us We were truly blessed by the Panjurli & Guliga Daiva. The fury remains undefeated. Wooaaah #Kantara #50DaysOfKantara.”
