Kantara is a movie about the conflict between man and nature. The climax of the movie is especially the highlight of the entire film. People are in complete awe of how that sequence was shot. As reported by the Times of India, when Chetan Bhagat asked Rishab whether he was open to doing Hindi films as an actor, he answered quite bluntly. The Kantara star said, “The Kannada film industry gave me a platform to become an actor, director and writer. Today, I am here, on this stage, and my film Kantara has got so much appreciated because it is from the Kannada industry. If audiences from the Hindi belt or any other region find my Kannada films interesting, I will bring those films to them in a dubbed version. There is no language barrier in cinema today, and people are watching regional content as is. Kannada cinema is my karmabhoomi and I would like to continue working there.”
After Chetan Bhagat, veteran actor Anupam Kher also asked Rishab something amusing. He asked Shetty, “But if an actor from outside wishes to do a Kannada film, are they allowed to?” Rishab instantly replied by saying that Anupam Kher is always welcome and that he is one of his favourites.
