Bollywood hit film Queen starring Kangana Ranaut is being remade in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam with Tamannaah Bhatia, Kajal Aggarwal, Parul Yadav and Manjima Mohan respectively reprising Kangana’s role. Directed by different directors, the shoot of the Queen remakes has been completed mostly and may get released soon. According to latest reports, Bollywood choreographer Caesar has been roped in to compose the dance moves for the wedding song which will be shot soon in Mysuru. “Caesar will choreograph the ‘Wedding Song’ in Kannada, Tamil and Telugu. We wanted the setting to be as authentic as possible, so, instead of having professional dancers on set, we have got 150 junior artistes for the shoot. All three versions will be shot in Mysuru shortly,” Parul Yadav was quoted as saying by TOI, who is playing the lead in Kannada version, Butterfly besides co-producing it.
Caesar says that he is not new to South Indian weddings and culture and is pretty aware of it. “I am not entirely unfamiliar with south Indian traditions as my wife is of Tamil-Telugu descent. Moreover, I have worked in south Indian films earlier. The makers of the Queen remakes also shared a bunch of candid wedding videos to give me a clear picture so that I can plan each version differently. They have also translated the lyrics of the songs for me. The three songs will be different, with glimpses of local rituals, etc.,” Caesar said.
The unit of the film recently returned from France where all the lead actresses shot for their portions of the film, and all of them seem to have had a great time canning their scenes. Parul started shooting for the remake of Queen, Butterfly, back in June this year and interestingly the shooting kicked off on the birthday of the Sandalwood actress. “It’s the most overwhelming feeling that I get to start this very important film of my career on my birthday. It has been a wonderful journey so far, but I am really looking forward to this new chapter that will unfold in my life,” Parul had said.
