Rishab Shetty’s Kantara has taken the box office by storm. The film, which has globally grossed Rs 100 crore at the box office was released in Hindi, Tami and Telugu languages over the weekend. Not only that, Kantara has also become the highest rated film on IMDB, overtaking the likes of Pushpa, Brahmastra, KGF 2 and Vikrant Rona. As per reports, the film has done exceptionally well in other languages as well. In Telugu states, the film grossed over Rs 10 crore in just two days.
As per latest reports, the Hindi version of the film, which has strong folk undertones, is going super strong at the box office and has even managed to rake in more moolah at the box office than Day 1.
For the unversed, Kantara tells the story of a folk god Bhoota, who trades forest land to the tribe’s people with a kind in the 1800s in exchange for happiness. However, when many years later, the descendants of the king go greedy and want the land back, things start spiraling beyond logic.
