Rishab Shetty’s Kantara was one of the breakout films of 2022 and ever since the makers announced its prequel, the anticipation is increasing with each passing day. Now, reports are rife that the makers are set to take the film on floors and will kick off filming on November 1, in Mangalore.
A source close to the development spoke to Pinkvilla and said, ““Rishab Shetty and his team have finished the writing and are currently immersed in pre-production. While the first part was shot in Shetty’s hometown in Kundapura, Kantara 2 will prominently be shot in Mangalore.”
“This location encompasses the required elements of jungle, land, and water as dictated by the script. The film has got bigger in budget and cast this time and will be filmed on a larger scale over a four-month schedule,” they further added.
The original Kantara was a massive sleeper hit, grossing around Rs. 400 crore worldwide and catapulting lead star and director (Shetty) to fame.
Overall the audiences are expecting something more interesting and visually magnificent with the prequel of ‘Kantara’ which will reportedly start filming soon.
