Speaking at the IFFI 2023 press conference, Rishab Shetty said, “OTT platforms are not open to the Kannada film industry. That is a very bad sign. They say there are no subscribers here, they are looking into the matter and thinking. Two production houses were actively working during Covid-19, Rakshit Shetty’s Paramvah Studios and my Rishab Shetty films, and apart from that, some production houses were also making films, and we are actively doing film festivals, but they are not taking the films.”

The ‘Kantara’ actor also had a special request to the sponsors at the IFFI. “So, I wanted to make a request to IFFI and its sponsors to give recognition to our films… films which have less exposure in theatres should also get some recognition and they should be taken to OTT platforms,” he added.
