Nivin remade the film as Richie, which released on Friday to mixed reviews from the critics. “More than an actor and a director, I am a movie lover. Bravo for ‘Ulidavaru Kandante,” he said in his Facebook post. It’s pretty hard to imagine how a masterpiece turned into a piece!! And because of that I tend to react passionately to movies. I did not consider my responsibility in that regard when I reacted on the Kannada movie ‘Ulidavaru Kandante’. “Rakshit Shetty, I know you on a personal level since my struggling days and I have always admired ur work as an Actor, Writer and a Director and Ulidavaru Kandante is a superior work of art!! I am sorry (sic),” he said. 2017-12-10T13:26:24+00:00″>

It also has actors Prakash Raj, Natarajan Subramaniam, Shraddha Srinath, Lakshmi Priyaa among others in pivotal roles. “Please note – I’m only appreciating a friend’s work from the past.”
Besides writing and directing, Rakshit had played the lead role in the coming of age crime drama. But I am also a professional in the cinema industry. I realize that impulsive reaction was a mistake which hurt a lot of people. He suggested Richie doesn’t match the “superior work” done by the original Kannada film, which had Rakshit Shetty in the lead role. Rakshit has written the screenplay for Richie, which was directed by Gautham Ramachandran. I apologise for the pain I may have caused due to this.
