Kangana to announce the ‘queen’ in the south

Ever since it was announced that producer-director Thiagarajan has bought the remake rights of Queen in all four south Indian languages, there has been much speculation on who will reprise the role of Rani, originally essayed by Kangana Ranaut.

Sources close to the unit say that Kangana herself will be present when the official announcement on the lead actress is made. Confirming the news, Thiagarajan says, “Yes, when the official announcement is made, Kangana Ranaut will crown the ‘queen’ herself. It is most likely to happen in the next couple of weeks.”

Ask him about who will essay the titular character and he says, “We are considering many names. Whoever has the appropriate dates to allot to the film will be finalized. That is all I can reveal now.” Presently, many names are being tossed around, but we hear Tammannaah, Shruti Haasan and Anushka are the forerunners to bag the role.
