Kirataka is a remake of hit Tamil film Kalavani, which deals with a freewheeling rural youth, who has the habit of getting into fun-filled acts that include proposing to each and every girl he comes across. Yash says that he does not have inclination to do remakes. But he accepted this movie because of its good story.
Actress Oviya, who has played female lead in the movie Kalavani, is now reprising the same role in its Kannada remake too. Directed by Pradeep Raj, the movie Kirataka features Tara and Ramesh Bhat in the important roles. The audio of the movie was recently released and the song 'Sreeranga Patna' has already become a big hit.
