Bollywood hit film ‘Queen’ is being remade in all the four South Indian languages and will have actresses Parul Yadav, Kajal Aggarwal, Tamannaah Bhatia and Manjima Mohan reprising Kangana’s role. The unit of the film were recently in France to shoot the Paris portions and returned recently. The shooting of the film is currently in progress and emerging reports reveal that the director of the Telugu remake, which stars Tamannaah Bhatia, Neelakanta has opted out of the project due to creative differences. Reports also indicate that Neelakanta has had creative differences with the lead actress Tamannaah Bhatia and decided to walk out. “Neelakanta sir has opted out of the project. The exact reason still remains unclear but it’s believed to be over creative differences with Tamannaah. The makers are hopeful they can convince him to get back on board. If he’s not too keen on coming back, Ramesh Aravind will complete the remaining portion of the project. This process will take a week or two,” a source close to unit was quoted in a report by Firstpost.
It is also being said that the makers are doing their best to bring the National Award winning filmmaker to bring back on-board and continue the shoot of the film. The remakes will have Parul Yadav playing the lead in Kannada, Kajal Aggarwal in Tamil and Manjima Mohan in the Malayalam version. The role played by Lisa Haydon in the Hindi version is being essayed by Elli AvrRam in Kannada and Tamil while the Telugu and Malayalam versions will Shibani Dandekar reprising that role. “I am in love with South Indian languages. They sound very nice. Kannada, in particular, has a very exotic ring to it. While it is Indian, the way it sounds, it feels European. What was encouraging was the fact that the team complimented my pronunciation of Kannada and said that I sound like just another Bengaluru girl,” Elli had said recently.
