Bollywood Queen which starred Kangana Ranaut was a blockbuster film in Bollywood and indeed made Kangana the Queen of Bollywood. Queen had sublime narration and the casting was one of the reasons why the film was such a success. Besides Kangana Ranaut, the film also features Rajkummar Rao and Lisa Haydon. The film is now being remake in Telugu, Kannada and Tamil by a leading production house.
The Kannada version has Parul Yadav reprise the role of Kangana Ranaut but the makers are yet to confirm the actress who would play in the Tamil and Telugu version of it. Ramesh Arvind, the director of Kannada version, spoke to a news agency and said,” I was told that Revathy would be directing the Tamil and Malayalam versions, and so initially, I didn’t ask for the Tamil project. In fact, I am very comfortable with Tamil. I can read and write the language, and have, after all, been part of 50 films here. Eventually, a lot of changes happened. The whole project was planned afresh, except for the Kannada version, and this time, I had no hesitation in pitching for the Tamil version as well.”
Speaking about the speculations around the lead actress in the Tamil version of Queen remake, Ramesh said,” I can’t officially confirm the Tamil heroine, but yes, I was told that Kajal Aggarwal would come on board.“
Ramesh Arvind also said that the production house is working on the rest of the cast. “We are looking for actors who are popular in Tamil and Kannada. We are also planning to bring in a newcomer as a hero and will soon be holding auditions for it,” added Ramesh Arvind.
