Rishab Shetty's acting in the Kannada action thriller Kantara is receiving a lot of positive feedback. He mentioned the late actor Puneeth Rajkumar in a recent interview. “Appu Sir is our emotion. I have said this earlier too, I would like to dedicate Kantara to two people, one is Appu sir - Puneeth Rajkumar ji, aur jo ek daiva narthak bolte hai, woh community ya community ka jo family hai - I would like to dedicate it to them. Also, whatever I do in the future, I would like to dedicate it all to Appu Sir,” Rishab said.
Puneeth Rajkumar had also been given Kantara by the actor-director. “Yes, we had spoken (about it), and two more subjects were okayed as well. I had a subject for him, and in between that we had discussed about Kantara too. But we couldn't do it because of the date clash,” says Rishab Shetty. Shetty confessed his affection for Kamal Haasan during the same conversation.
“He is a God. I don’t have enough words to describe him. I am a big fan of his performance. He is the God of performance,” states Shetty.
The Tulu version of the movie, meanwhile, is slated to be released in the first week of December. A significant amount of the Tulu dubbing for the movie has already been completed. They intend to release the movie the first week of December, but that depends on receiving the censorship certificate, according to a source.
