Four years after Kangana Ranaut played a jilted bride who went off by herself on her honeymoon in Queen, Kajal Aggarwal's Paris Paris (Tamil), Tammana Bhatia's That is Mahalakshmi (Telugu), Parul Yadav's Butterfly (Kannada), Manjima Mohan's Zam Zam (Malayalam) are set to repeat the same feat, simultaneously.
Tamil and Kannada versions are Directed by Ramesh Aravind. Neelakanta directed the Malayalam version (Zam Zam), while Prashant Varma handled the Telugu version(That Is Mahalakshmi).
when asked why Four remakes? The story needed to be made in as many languages as possible said producer Manu Kumaran in a recent promotional interview. “Queen is such a powerful story,” said the founder of Mediente Films. “Marriage is treated as a destination for women across all cultures. It is a story that deserves to be told.” A multi-language project allowed each remake to have more resources and a bigger canvas. “We could not have spent so much money if we had just made one of the movies,” Kumaran said.
The 2014 Hindi comedy was directed by Vikas Bahl and written by Bahl, Chaitally Parmar and Parveez Shaikh. Anvita Dutt Guptan wrote the dialogue, for which Ranaut has an additional credit. The film traces Rani’s emotional and psychological journey after she is deserted on the eve of her wedding. Since the honeymoon to Paris and Amsterdam has been pro-booked, Rani decides to go ahead anyway, meeting a set of characters along the way who help her regain her confidence and transform her outlook.
