Vikas Bahl’s critically acclaimed Queen, starring Kangana Ranaut in the role of a lifetime, has been on the cards to be remade in Tamil for a long time.

After almost a year since its southern remake rights were acquired by actor-producer Thiagarajan, it has been confirmed that Tamannaah Bhatia, who is on a career high, with three back-to-back hits, will reprise Kangana’s role. An excited Tamannaah said that she felt liberated when she watched the original, and it has always been her desire to be part of this project.

Veteran actress Revathy, most popular for helming Mitr: My Friend will direct the remake and it will mark her debut in the language. Suhasini Mani Ratnam has been roped in to pen the dialogues. Although it was initially rumoured that Revathi might direct the film in all the southern languages, however, sources close to Thiagarajan have denied the same and added that directors for other languages are yet to be finalized.

The film will also be remade in Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. Rumour has it that Amala Paul might star in the Malayalam version and Parul Yadav might be roped in for the Kannada version. The regular shooting for the Tamil version will commence from early next year.
