Actor Amy Jackson, who will next be seen in superstar Rajinikanth's magnum opus 2.0, was to play a crucial role in the southern remakes of Vikas Bahl's critically-acclaimed film Queen, which was officially launched in Tamil and Malayalam last month.

While Kajal Aggarwal plays the lead in Paris Paris, the Tamil version of the film, Manjima Mohan plays the lead in the Malayalam version titled Zam Zam.

Amy Jackson, roped in to play Lisa Haydon's part from the original, has opted out of the project due to date issues.

She regrets missing out on a great project as she was really looking forward to the film. Speaking to DNA, she said: "I really wanted to be a part of the project. It’s a fun, fierce role. I loved Lisa’s role in the Hindi version and thought I could do justice to it for the remake.”

She expressed unavailability of dates as the reason for opting out.

Amy says, “It didn’t work out because of the schedule for Supergirl. It didn’t work out creatively.”

Amy will be playing Saturn Girl in the superhero drama series, and she recently joined the sets to shoot.

In Queen, Lisa played a pivotal role and she helps Kangana in her journey of rediscovery.

It'll be interesting to see who will now be brought in as replacement for Amy. All the four versions of the remake have gone on the floors.

Tamannaah Bhatia plays the lead in the Telugu version of the remake which will be helmed by National award-winning director Neelakanta. The remake marks the southern debut of composer Amit Trivedi.
