In the 2022 film ‘Kantara,’ Rishab depicted Panjurli, a bhoota (a divine spirit of a male wild boar), which is known as the protector of righteousness and is a part of Bhoota Kola, as a Hindu god Vishnu’s incarnation, Varaha. In an interview, while talking about this, he said,
Those gods, they are all part of our tradition. It is part of Hindu culture and Hindu rituals. Because I am a Hindu, I have belief and respect for my religion. But I will not say others are wrong. What we have said is through the element that is present in Hindu dharma.”
He was criticised by netizens for portraying Panjurli as Varaha in the film. Later, in an interview, while talking about how he went down to rural coastal Karnataka to research deeply about the local legends and folklore, so that the religious beliefs of people could not get hurt. He said,
I was looking at a story rooted in coastal Karnataka about agricultural land. But it isn’t just land. Bhootakola, Daivaradhane, our culture, our rituals and beliefs are all part of that. Once agricultural activities finish, it is marked with a celebration for 3-4 months because that is a ritual. People who have left the village also return for it. Such strong is the belief around all of it. It’s a rule. I wanted to bring all that but I did not have the complete idea and knowledge about it. I didn’t want any problem. I didn’t want anybody to be hurt or offended. I talked to the people who perform these rituals. I asked them more about it and researched more about it to be sure about how to go about it.
