Kantara Box Office (Hindi): Rishab Shetty’s film sees a 100 percent leap, here’s what it made its mark on

It was a golden year for the Kannada film industry. The numbers of the second week for Kantara were better than the first week’s numbers and it seems like the third week started off the same way. Solid word of mouth led to the Hindi-dubbed version being released in its third week, which garnered a lot of attention, especially in Maharashtra. The film was released to around 1200 screens and there was much hype, with figures falling below Rs 1.10 crore on the first day. It posted an astronomical growth of over 110 percent as it raked in Rs. 2.35 cr net on the second day. The film’s two-day collection costs Rs 3.45 crore.

Hombale Films, the producers behind one of this year’s biggest blockbusters, KGF: Chapter 2, also funded Kantara. Although the budget for Kantara is not as big as that of KGF, the film has impressed everyone with its immersive visual style.

Kantara is now one of the biggest blockbuster in Karnataka and has seen ticket sales worth Rs 60 crore there. The Kannada version also saw many squat shows in Kerala. The film is expected to break the Rs 100 crore mark soon. Kantara was written and directed by Rishab Shetty, who also starred in it. The film is based on local folklore and its visual splendor highlights the beauty of Karnataka’s hill stations.

Southern films have been stiff competition for Bollywood this year as Vikram, RRR, KGF 2 and now Ponniyin Selvan raged at the box office both domestically and internationally, while the Hindi film industry struggled hard with several big-budget films like Laal Singh Chaddha and Raksha Bandhan bombing, although Ranbir Kapoor’s Brahmastra brought some relief at the ticket offices.
