Kantara Hindi is gradually gaining traction to become the biggest contributor to the overall box office success of the film. The Rishab Shetty film is currently playing in five different languages across the country with the original Kannada release and the dubbed Hindi & Telugu versions performing tremendously at the box office. However, it would seem that Kantara Hindi is exceeding expectations without breaking a sweat and is now outdoing the Kannada version in terms of daily collections.
Yes, as per the latest trade reports, Kantara Hindi is well placed to collect more than Rs. 10 crores (net) at the domestic box office and surpass both Kannada and Telugu versions by a clear margin. Kantara has encountered a dip in sales in its home state of Karnataka owing to the release of the Puneeth Rajkumar-starrer Gandhada Gudi and as a result, the Hindi release is now slowly emerging as the winner of the lot.
The same trade reports reveal that Kantara (Kannada) collected Rs. 1.73 crores on Friday, Day 29, and Rs. 3.07 crores the following day. Kantara Hindi, on the other hand, has collected Rs. 2.54 crores and Rs. 4.22 crores on Friday and Saturday respectively - all the figures mentioned are in net value.
The Hombale Films production is now inching towards grossing Rs. 250 crores at the domestic box office, having already gone past the mark worldwide. Kantara is the second highest-grossing Kannada film of all time and recently went past K.G.F: Chapter 1 (KGF 1) to claim this new position. The film is also among the biggest south Indian films that have done well in Hindi.
In a recent interview, Rishab Shetty was asked about the possibility of remaking Kantara in Hindi and the actor-director responded by saying that as much as admires Hindi cinema and its actors, he is not interested in remakes.
