Indian film Kantara, starring Rishab Shetty in the lead role, was screened at the Pathe Balexert theatre Geneva on March 17. An audience of about 220 people including the UN representatives, Heads of International Organisations from Germany, Brazil, UNCTAD (United Nations Conference on Trade and Development), ITU (International Telecommunication Union) WHO (World Health Organisation), Sri Lanka, Myanmar, and Indian diaspora attended the screening. The audience gave a rapturous response to the film.

Helmed by Kannada star Rishab, Kantara not only garnered critics’ praises but also minted a whopping amount of money at the box office. The film completed its glorious run of 100 days in the theatres in February. On that occasion, Rishab announced the film’s prequel.

He said, “We are very pleased and thankful to the audience who had shown immense love and support to Kantara and taking the journey ahead, with the blessing of almighty Daiva the film has successfully completed 100 days and I would like to take this opportunity to announce the prequel of Kantara. What you have seen is actually Part 2, Part 1 will come next year. The idea has been flashed into my mind while I was shooting for Kantara because the history of Kantara has more depth to it, and currently, if the writing part is concerned we are in the middle of digging into more details. As the research is still progressing, it would be very early to reveal details about the film.”
