Actor Tamannaah Bhatia is thrilled to be part of the yet-untitled Tamil remake of Vikas Bahl’s critically-acclaimed Bollywood film Queen. The film will be helmed by veteran actor Revathi.
“Ever since I saw Queen, I wanted to be part of its remake, even though I wasn’t sure if it will be remade. What makes Queen special is that it’s one of those rare women-centric films which succeeded in reaching out to everybody, across all sections of the audience,” Tamannaah said about the Kangana Ranaut-starrer.
Having waited over a year for the opportunity, she said she is very excited.
“I felt liberated when I saw Queen, and I can’t wait to start working on the remake. The fact that Revathi ma’am is directing it makes it even more special because she was the inspiration for my character in Devi,” she said.
The film will feature dialogues by actor-filmmaker Suhasini Mani Ratnam.
“I think it’s going to be a great combination. More than a remake, this will be treated as an adaptation as a lot of things have to be changed to suit Tamil sensibilities,” added Tamannaah.
