Its been three and a half years since the release of Kangana Ranaut-starrer Bollywood film ‘Queen’. Discussions for its remake in all the South languages have been going on for a long time. It seems the Telugu remake has finally landed in safe hands.
Our trusted sources have divulged that acclaimed Telugu film director Neelakanta has been finalized to direct the Telugu remake of ‘Queen’. Neelakanta has won numerous awards including a National Film Award and a couple of Nandi awards for his acclaimed films such as ‘Show’ and ‘Missamma’. The director however has been going through a barren period for past few years. ‘Queen’ remake will be a potential opportunity for him to bounce back.
There were rumors in the recent time that Kajal has been roped in to reprise the lead role enacted by Kangana in the Hindi original. They all turned out to be baseless rumors as Tamannah is playing the female lead role in the Telugu remake. An official announcement in this regard will be made in a week. Amy Jackson will play the character of heroine’s friend, the second most important role in the film.
Post ‘Baahubali’ first part, Tamannaah really hasn’t had any notable film to her credit. Hence, she hopes to make great use of the potential ‘Queen’ remake to revive her fading career.
