Vikas Bahl’s critically acclaimed Queen, which featured Kangana Ranaut in a feisty role, and fetched her the National award for Best Actress was to be remade in Tamil and Telugu with Tamannaah Bhatia in the lead.

Earlier this year, an excited Tamannaah had confirmed that she was really happy to be part of the project and said she can’t wait to commence work on the film. The yet-untitled remake was supposed to be directed by Revathy and actor-producer Thiagarajan was to bankroll the project. However, the project stands shelved for reasons yet unknown.

“It is true that the project has been shelved. The exact reason still remains a mystery but Tamannaah has apparently moved on to her other commitments. She had set aside dates for the project in June and July. However, when she was informed that the project might not take off as planned earlier, she decided to use the dates for other commitments,” a source said, adding that the plan to make the film in Telugu also stands cancelled.

In a recent interaction, the actress said, "I am doing a lot more female-centric films in the south. Surprisingly after Baahubali, I have got a lot of offers with women-oriented subjects.”

Tamannaah, meanwhile, will complete her portion in Vikram’s Sketch and Pon Ondru Kanden, the Tamil remake of National award-winning Telugu film Pellichoopulu and currently, the actress is busy promoting her film Baahubali 2.
