Kantara, which began as a Kannada film, transcended regional barriers and received widespread praise. It grossed 362 crores in India and a whopping 398 crores globally. Kantara was notable for its exceptional success despite being produced on a cheap budget of only 16 crore rupees.

However, Kantara 2 is likely to be distinct from the original installment. With high expectations following the success of the predecessor, the film’s production team is leaving no stone untouched. Kantara 2 is said to be being built on a huge scale, with a budget of 150 crore rupees. The choice to spend so much money hints at the filmmakers’ desire to create an even more magnificent cinematic experience.

Aside from budgetary considerations, Rishabh Shetty is through a tremendous metamorphosis in his role in Kantara Part 2. He is determined to lose 11 kilogrammes of body weight in order to seem thinner. The film’s plot is set in 400 AD, which adds to the mystery surrounding Kantara 2.

Because Kantara’s story develops against a beach setting, the filming will take place in such locales. Rishabh Shetty has reportedly travelled to Mangaluru with the film’s writers Anirudh Mahesh, Shanil Guru, and the team to work on the story and screenplay. Although filming has begun, there is no official word on when the film will be released.
