This is Big! Rishab Shetty’s ‘Kantara’ Surpasses Rs 400-crore Mark


Rishab Shetty’s ‘Kantara’ has hit yet another milestone at the global box office as the movie has crossed Rs 400-crore mark. The film’s collections in Karnataka stand at Rs 168.5 crore.

Kantara has earned Rs 400 crore

The Kannada film Kantara opened in theatres on September 30 and emerged as a massive hit in Karnataka. The film soon performed well in Telugu, Hindi, and Malayalam. And now, Kantara has grossed Rs 400 crore worldwide. The film remains a force at the box office days after its release, which is quite a respectable feat. Kantara is an action-thriller, directed by and starring Rishab Shetty.


About 42 percent of its revenue has come from Karnataka alone. The film has earned Rs 168.5 crore in Karnataka, its biggest market beating KGF: Chapter 2 (155 crores). Kantara has done well in Kerala too ( Rs 19.2 crore), North India (Rs 96 crore), and the Telugu states (Rs 60 crore+). The collection in the overseas market stands at Rs 44 crore (approx). It has earned Rs 12.70 crore in Tamil Nadu.


All about Kantara

Kantara, written and directed by Rishab Shetty himself, is produced by Vijay Kiragandur under Hombale Films. The film stars Shetty as a Kambala champion who challenges upright DRFO officer, Murali (played by Kishore).


‘Kantara’ was released with less expectations on 30 September and it clashed with Mani Ratnam’s ambitious film ‘Ponniyin Selvam: Part 1’. With highly positive words, the movie managed to strike gold not only in Karnataka but in the Hindi belt and the Telugu-speaking states.
