Making a splash in 2014, ‘Queen’ took Bollywood by storm as it made big bucks at the box office despite any A-lister names. Not only was the movie a mega success but Kangana Ranaut became an overnight sensation as she shone as the cute yet tenacious ‘Rani’.
And now it looks like the South Indian film industries are gearing up to recreate that magic as the super hit film is just not being remade in one but four languages- Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu.
The actresses bound to take on the role have some seriously huge shoes to fill as they don the mantle of the iconic character.
As per the ongoing buzz, all the four films will be directed by different filmmakers and different actresses have been signed for each language.
Parul Yadav will be the Kannada Queen, while Kajal Aggarwal will be seen donning Kangana’s character in the Tamil version.

A source confirmed to Deccan Chronicle, “The makers have decided to cast a different actress in every South language the film is being remade in. While Tamannaah was roped in for Telugu, Manjima is on board for Malayalam. Kajal is part of the Tamil remake.”
However, makers are yet to make the official announcement. But looking at the news and reports brewing, we already know who will be seen playing Queen.
Talking about the makers, the Telugu movie is being directed by Neelakanta, while the Kannada version is being helmed by actor-director Ramesh Arvind.
We are yet to know who will direct the Tamil version and if reports are to be believed, Neelakanta will be directing the Malayalam remake as well.
The cast and crew of the four versions are already under pressure to do justice to the movie, and here is hoping that the end results make Kangana give her approval.
