Update: It is clarified that Golden Crab Film Production, a London-based production company, has acquired the rights to remake Bollywood blockbuster Queen in all South Indian languages.
Parul Yadav's birthday on June 5 turned out to be very special for the actor as she began shooting for her upcoming Kannada film, Butterfly.
On working in the movie, Parul said in a statement, “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.”
Interestingly, Butterfly is the remake of the hit Bollywood flick Queen, which was directed by Vikas Bahl. The film fetched its lead actor Kangna Ranaut the National Award under the Best Actress category. Noted actor and director, Ramesh Aravind is helming the affairs as the director for this remake with Amy Jackson reprising the role done by Lisa Haydon in the original.
Parul Yadvav began her career with the Tamil film Dreams in 2004 and had starred in a number of Kannada and Malayalam films with a couple of Tamil films in between. Her last film release was Jessie last year and she has a couple of films in different stages of production.
Ever since actor-producer Thyagarajan procured the remake rights of Queen in all the four south Indian languages, there were a lot of expectations on who would be reprising Kangana’s role in these. With Parul Yadav’s inclusion in the Kannada version, it needs to be seen who would be playing the role in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam.
Queen, a comedy drama, was directed by Vikas Bahl and produced by Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane, and Madhu Mantena. The film released in 2014 and won the National award under the Best Hindi Film and Best Actress category.
