After making waves the world over with its simplicity of story-telling, amazing direction and stellar performances, the super hit film Queen is ready for its South side sojourn. South legendary superstar Thiagarajan, actor-director-producer, has now bought the rights to remake the film in all the four South Indian languages, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada.
“Queen touched my heart. I saw the film, and it stayed on in my heart long after. It is this ability of Queen to relate to audiences irrespective of language and boundary barriers that prompted me to take up the film. We are planning to start work on all the four remakes simultaneously and release them by 2015,” reveals Thiagarajan. He promises a no-cost spared affair with an extensive shoot in Paris, Amsterdam and Spain.
Thiagarajan is now on the lookout for the perfect woman with the spark to play the protagonist Rani. He admits that top Bollywood actresses have sent feelers, but he is still to take a call on the lead actress. Thiagarajan is however keen that Lisa Haydon who played Kangana’s friend in the original, essays the same role in the remakes.
Rumours are rife about Thiagarajan’s son and south side superstar Prashanth playing an integral part of Queen as well. Thiagarajan smiles and says he will let Prashanth take that call.
