Yes folks, we finally have a winner!! The debate has been going on for long about who’s going to play the lead role of Rani, essayed by Kangana Ranaut, in the Tamil remake of the Bollywood hit, Queen. The contenders were many including Nayanthara, Hansika, Samantha and Tamannah.
But now we have reports rolling in that Trisha Krishnan has beat them to the punch and has bagged the hugely coveted role!
Queen, which came out earlier this year, was an unexpected hit and was exceptionally well received by the fans and the critics. The story of a young girl, who is ditched by her would be groom the day before the wedding, but instead of breaking down decides to go on her planned honey moon trip alone and in the process gains perspective, captured the hearts of many.
The coming of age story has universal appeal, and for sure, with a few minor tweaks here and there to suit the cultural climate, the Tamil audiences will be find themselves falling in love with the character of the brave young heroine too.
Kangana received much praise for the original performance, with her acting skills being tested in a variety of ways and her coming out on top in the end. The plot itself is a perfect blend of raw drama, lots of effortless humour and a bunch of feel good moments.
Veteran actor and producer Thyagarajan will be the one remaking the movie in Kollywood, and the rest of the cast and crew haven’t been announced yet.
But buckle up Kollywood fans, this is certainly an exciting one coming your way soon..
