In a few hours, the first set of paid premieres for Kannada actor-filmmaker Rishab Shetty’s Kantara will take off. And unlike most other film teams who tour the state pre-release to drum up publicity, Rishab and his team of Kantara will head across the length and breadth of Karnataka starting tomorrow. Taking to social media for a quick Instagram live with fans, Rishab was excited about the good response to the premieres tonight, most of which are fast filling.

In the run-up to the release of the film, Rishab began promoting it only in the last two weeks, as he was neck-deep in the post-production work. While he has been squeezing in as many interviews as possible in Bengaluru, he has not been able to dedicate time to visit people across the state. What Rishab will do is that he will take his team on a Kantara tour across Karnataka after the release of the film. After the premieres tonight, Rishab will head to the morning shows in the heart of Gandhinagar for theatre visits and then rush to Mysuru to be a part of the Yuva Dasara celebrations. Next week onward, once the holidays kick in, they will begin the Kantara tour, the schedule of which will be announce in due course of time.

Kantara, which is a story revolving around a mysterious forest, hinges on a man vs man and man vs nature conflict. The film pits Rishab’s Shiva against Kishore’s Murali, with Sapthami Gowda, Prakash Tumminad, Achyuth Kumar, among others, providing ample support. The film, produced by Hombale Films, has music by Ajaneesh B Loknath and cinematography by Aravind Kashyap.

It is being released across the globe in Kannada language only, with English subtitles. There were rumours of it getting a Tulu version, but Rishab confirms that only parts of the film have a Tulu influence, including a song.
