Kantara: After meeting the Tamil superstar, Rishab Shetty believes that Rajinikanth’s one wish is like 100 to us.
If you thought Rajinikanth’s social media post praising Rishab Shetty’s “divine blockbuster” Kantara was the biggest and best thing ever, think again. The Tamil celebrity apparently found Rishab’s storytelling to be so captivating that he made time to see the Kannada actor-director. Rishab posted pictures from their meeting on social media because he was so ecstatic to get the chance to speak with Rajinikanth and felt like he had won the lottery.
Using Rajinikanth’s famous Bhaasha line, which loosely translates to “If I say it once, it is comparable to saying it a hundred times,” Rishab said in a post accompanying the images, “If you praise once, to us, it is like praising it a hundred times.” Rishab continued, “I’ll stay here forever,”We are appreciative of the Tamil superstar for seeing, encouraging, and enjoying Kannada movies.
The photographs were also uploaded on the official account of Hombale Films, the production company behind the movie, along with the caption, “‘Master and his Apprentice’ engaged in an informative discourse! With our #Shiva, The One & Only @rajinikanth sir @shetty rishab”.
This week before, Rajinikanth had posted on social media that the movie Rishab had truly given him shivers. He praised it as a masterpiece, writing, “The unknown is more than the known” no one could have articulated this in cinema better than @hombalefilms #KantaraMovie you gave me goosebumps.” @shetty rishab.Congratulations on your success as an author, director, and actor, Rishab. Congratulations to the entire cast and crew of this Indian film gem.
“Dear @rajinikanth sir, you are the biggest Superstar in India and I have been your fan since childhood,” Rishab said in response. Your praise is a realisation of my dream.You inspire all of our audiences and inspire me to pen more local stories. I’m grateful, sir.
Kantara, a Kannada film aimed at local audiences that opened in theatres on September 30, captured the attention of moviegoers across the nation, prompting the producers to dub the picture earlier than anticipated into Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam. The movie, which has brought in a staggering Rs 200+ crore at the box office and is still running strong, has had record-breaking attendance for Hombale Films in Karnataka.
