Rishab Shetty’s ‘Kantara’ has shattered all records by becoming the highest-rated Indian movie on IMDb

Kantara’s rating on IMDb peaked to 9.6 surpassing ratings of big hits like RRR and KGF: Chapter 2

The Kannada flick is cashing big on the box office too with a country-wide net collection of Rs 72.6 crore since its release

With Kantara grabbing eyeballs across India, this is a momentous time for Kannada cinema

Kantara released in Hindi in theatres on October 14

The stars are in favour of the Kannada film industry with KGF: Chapter 2, 777 Charlie scoring big at the box office 

In 2022, South films have trumped the box-office earnings of even star-studded Bollywood movies like Laal Singh Chaddha and Raksha Bandhan

It remains to be seen whether Kantara does what Baahubali did for the Telugu film industry
