Veteran actress-director Revathy will remake Vikas Bahl’s Hindi film Queen in Tamil and Telugu. A source close to the actress said that the remakes will have dialogues written by actress Suhasini Maniratnam. The duo are currently working on the script.
Actor-producer Thiyagarajan has purchased the rights of Queen in all the four South Indian languages. The remakes will go on floors sometime in March.
A feel-good movie about a young Punjabi woman’s solo trip to France, Queen has Kangana Ranaut and Lisa Haydon in the lead roles. It was a major critic and commercial success in 2013.
Revathy, known for her roles in Thevarmagan (Tamil), Love (Hindi), Mouna Ragam (Tamil) and Kilukkam (Malayalam), has directed two films – Mitr My Friend and Phir Milenge – in the past.
