Speaking at the IFFI press conference, Rishab said, ‘I have to give the initial credit to the Kannada audience for making ‘Kantara’ such a huge success. It is because of them that the film went on to have a wider reach in other states. So, I’m always grateful and thankful to the Kannada audience.

However, an X user pointed out that he was taking a dig at Rashmika Mandanna. After many called him out, he apologised to Rishab for twisting his statement. The X user wrote, ‘My sincere apologies to @shetty_rishab this is what he actually said. He meant that he doesn’t want to be called a person who’s leaving the industry after delivering one hit.

Rishab Shetty replied to the post and wrote, ‘No problem, finally someone understood what I really meant to say (sic).’
