`Queen` to be remade in Tamil, Telugu

Mumbai: After winning hearts in Bollywood, Kangana Ranaut-starrer `Queen`, the story of a woman who sets out for a solo honeymoon, will soon be adapted in Telugu and Tamil.

Director Vikas Bahl, who will be creatively involved with these remakes, said he is happy that the film will get a new section of audience.

"There`s a Rani in every corner of the world which is why this story found takers everywhere. For some strange reason, a lot of people at Busan film festival asked us if it was a Korean film. That`s when it struck us that it`s a universal story. And so, when a couple of producers approached us, we gave the remakes a go ahead," Bahl said in a statement.

"It`s a great feeling to know that a film which has been made with a lot of heart and emotions is getting this kind of an acceptance across different languages. For me, the biggest joy is that the film will be watched by a newer audience, which might have not got the same experience in its original form," he added.

Starring Ranaut, Rajkumar Yadav and Lisa Haydon among others, `Queen` not only created waves at the box-office but also won critical acclaim.
