Four Actresses, Four Movies, One Queen

Remake for Kangana Ranaut's super hit 'Queen' has been in the works for a long time. The project has now grown to four movies, with the original being remade in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada. Makers of the films have roped in 4 actresses- Tamannaah Bhatia for 'Queen Once Again' in Telugu, Kajal Aggarwal for 'Paris, Paris' in Tamil, Parul Yadav for 'Butterfly' in Kannada, and Manjima Mohan for 'Zam Zam' in Malayalam. Along with starring in the film, Yadav will also co-produce all four movies.

The first schedule for the films was shot simultaneously in Frejus, a small city in France. It would be interesting to know that even though there are four remakes, there are just two directors, Ramesh Aravind, who will work on the Kannada and Tamil versions, and Neelakantha, who will direct the Malayalam and Telugu versions. Music will be composed by Amit Trivedi, who rendered his expertise to the original too. “I began working on the project recently. It is too early to comment on the music but it won't be the same as the original. The music will be influenced by the languages. Since it is a remake, the approach may be the same, but the treatment may differ,” he said in a statement.
