Cast yet to be finalised; Suhasini Mani Ratnam to write dialogues in both languages.

Veteran actor-filmmaker Revathy, known for directing films like Mitr, My Friendand Phir Milenge will helm the yet-untitled Tamil and Telugu remake of Vikas Bahl’s critically-acclaimed 2013 film Queen.

“Revathy has been roped in to direct the remake. While the lead cast is yet to be finalised, the film will have dialogues in both the languages by actress Suhasini Mani Ratnam,” a source told IANS.

Queen is the story of a young Punjabi girl, played by Kangana Ranaut, who embarks on her honeymoon to Paris alone after her fiancé calls off her wedding.

The source further added that the project is slated to go on the floors later this year.

“Suhasini has finished worked on the first half of the film. She’ll spend next couple of months finish work on the second half. By October or November, the film will most likely go to the sets,” he said.

The remake is being bankrolled by producer Thiyagarajan.
