Is Urvashi Rautela part of Kantara 2? Rishab Shetty opens up
Kantara, the Kannada film became one of the biggest films of 2022. Helmed by Rishab Shetty, the film received endless love globally and became the second highest-grossing Kannada film of all time.
As Kantara completed 100 days in theatres in January, the cast and crew came together for a celebration. At the event, Homabale Films founder Vijay Kiragandur announced its sequel Kantara 2.
The actor-director-writer of the film Rishab Shetty also announced that the film will actually be a prequel and that what we had seen was part 2 of the story.
Since the announcement, fans have been speculating about the cast but there has been no official news yet. A few days ago, Urvashi Rautela shared a picture on Instagram with Rishab Shetty tagging ‘Homabale Productions’ following which internet users started to speculate if she is a part of the next film.
Now, Rishab Shetty has finally opened up about it during the Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Awards and refuted the speculations and said fans are wrongly connecting the film with a selfie. He also informed that he is still writing the script and upon its completion, an official announcement will be made.
As soon as the video went viral, users started commenting on how relieved they were that Rautela would not be a part of the film.
Of late, Rautela is being slammed on social media in connection with the Indian cricketer Rishabh Pant who met with a severe accident last year. Fans are unhappy with the actor and accused her of harassing the cricketer continuously.
Meanwhile, Kantara’s cast also included Kishore, Achyuth Kumar, Sapthami Gowda and Pramod Shetty. The film earned more than Rs 450 crore at the box office.
Kantara 2 is set to release next year. Set in Keradi in coastal Karnataka, the film revolves around the Bhoota Kola practice.
