#Kantara, the latest Kannada movie directed by #RishabhShetty, has been making headlines ever since its release. True to its origins, the film of rustic brilliance is receiving positive responses from the who's who of the film fraternity across India, while wowing #cinema lovers! Image
Our Emeritus Director, Dr. K. Ullas Karanth, is the latest to share his admiration for Kantara. As a conservation organisation based in #Karnataka, we are pleased to share Dr. Karanth’s words of praise for the #film and the filmmaker as follows:
