Nawazuddin Siddiqui said, “The entire country saw Rishab and is shocked. He did not promote it or anything, he slipped in quietly and broke all, impressed one and all. If someone does good work, a sense of jealousy (crops in) and, at the same time, the urge to compete inspires.
“Of course, jealousy. It happens, because he is doing such good work. It is not that (negative) kind of jealousy, but it makes you stand on your toes that even I have to work hard.”
Reacting to Siddiqui’s statement, Rishab Shetty stated, “I have watched so many of Nawaz bhai’s movies and watched his journey filled with hard work and effort. He is like us, we are middle-class people with no background but we want to come into the industry and make it big.
“He is a very big inspiration. He has come from theatre and done so many small roles (before making it big). Even we have done such small roles in Kannada cinema before we got our big break. He is our senior, we have the same journey.”
On the other hand, Hrithik Roshan tweeted, “Learnt so much by watching Kantara. The power of Rishab Shetty’s conviction makes the film extraordinary. Top notch storytelling, direction and acting. The peak climax transformation gave me goosebumps. Respect and kudos to the team.”
