Kantara directed by Rishabh Shetty is making waves in Indian cinema. The film is getting praise from all over the country. Several actors have taken to their social media accounts and declared it as the best film of the year even before the year is over. Actress Kangana Ranaut has said that it should be considered India’s entry for the Academy Awards. It has been almost seven weeks since the film released in the theaters and it is still doing well. The film has so far earned around Rs 288.93 crore.

Now, it seems the Kannada blockbuster is in big trouble. Dalit organizations have condemned the portrayal of Dalits in the superhit all-India Kannada film “Kantara”.

State Secretary of Samta Sainik Dal, Lolaksh has said that Dalits have been insulted in the film. “The Dalit community has been shown in a bad light,” he said, claiming that the “daivaradhane” scenes in the film were doctored.

He also objected to the climax of the last 20 minutes of the film.

Lolaksh had said that he would bring his objections to the notice of the film team first. If his objections are not taken seriously, he will initiate legal action against the film’s team.

“Kantara” is the second all-India superhit of the Kannada film industry after “KGF Chapter-2”.
