The box office hit ‘Queen’ (2013) is all set to be remade in all four South Indian languages. The leading lady in the films who will play Kangna Ranaut’s character are Tamannaah Bhatia and Amala Paul, BizAsiaLive.com has learnt.
As reported in Indian Express, Paul was already confirmed to do the Malayalam and Kannada films and Bhatia had signed up to the Tamil version, but after hearing the Telugu version she has agreed to do this remake also. She hasn’t officially signed the project as yet though.
Bhatia who is a massive fan of the original film, can’t wait to start the filming and is extremely excited about it all. “Ever since I saw Queen, I wanted to be a part of its remake. What makes the film special is that it’s one of those rare women-centric films which succeeded in reaching out to everybody, across all sections of the audience,” said Bhatia.
All four South Indian films will have two different directors. The Tamil and Malayalam and Tamil versions will be helmed by Revathi, who will at the same time be making her directorial debut. Ramesh Aravind will be taking the reigns for the Telugu and Kannada films. Dialogues will be written by Suhasini Maniratnam.
For Bhatia, it’s won’t be the first time that she will be doing a Bollywood reprise. Her last film was ‘Kanden Kadhalai’, which was a remake of the hit film ‘Jab We Met’ (2007).
