Kantara Box Office
Meanwhile, Rishab Shetty’s film is continuing to break box office records even almost a month after its release. Over the course of the Diwali holidays, the Kannada film crossed the Rs 200-crore barrier in terms of gross worldwide collections. It has now become the third Kannada film ever to do so.
This figure is now only behind KGF: Chapter 2 ( Rs 1207 crore) and KGF: Chapter 1 ( Rs 250 crore) in the list of highest-grossing Kannada films of all time. What’s noteworthy is that Kantara is still doing well at the box office. On October 23, its 25th day, it earned over Rs 8 crore nett across India in all languages. Going by this, it may just move past KGF 1 into second place by the end of its run.
