Controversy

Kantara Film Row

Panjurli, a ghost (a divine spirit of male wild boar) who is a protector of righteousness and a part of Bhoot Kola, was portrayed as Varaha, an incarnation of the Hindu god Vishnu, in the 2022 film ‘Kantara’. In an interview, Rishabh Shetty courted controversy when he considered the Bhoota Kola tradition of the Dakshina Kannada region to be part of Hindu culture, saying,

Those gods, they are all part of our tradition. Certainly it is part of Hindu culture and Hindu customs. Because I am a Hindu, I have faith and respect for my religion. But I wouldn’t say that other people are wrong. What we have said is through the element that is present in Hinduism.”

Netizens criticized Panjurli for portraying him as Varaha, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Later, Rishabh defended himself by saying that he did not want to hurt people’s religious beliefs; He went to rural coastal Karnataka for research and to be more precise about the culture, where all these rituals and stories originated. In an interview he talked about how he thoroughly researched about the rituals before making the film and said,

I was watching a story related to agricultural land in coastal Karnataka. But it’s not just land. Bhutakola, Daivaradhane, our culture, our customs and beliefs are all part of that. Once the agricultural activities are over, it is celebrated as a festival for 3-4 months as it is a ritual. Even those who have left the village return for this. The belief around it is so strong. This is a rule. I wanted to bring all that but I did not have complete information and knowledge about it. I didn’t want any problems. I didn’t want anyone to be hurt or hurt. I talked to people who perform these rituals. I asked him more about it and did more research to make sure I knew how to proceed with it. I talked to people who perform these rituals. I asked him more about it and did more research about it to make sure how to go about it.
