Popular South actress Amy Jackson, who was earlier roped in to portray the Lisa Haydon's role in the South remake of Kangana Ranaut's Queen is no more a part of the remake. The 2.0 actress who was planned to star in the Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam remakes of the Bollywood hit has been replaced by popular IPL host-turned actress Shibani Dandekar and Elli AvrRam, former contestant of Salman Khan's BiggBoss show.
Reportedly, Shibani will be seen in the Telugu and Malayalam remakes of Queen while Elli reprises Lisa's role in the Tamil and Kannada remakes of the Kangana Ranaut starrer.
Though there were reports that Amy had walked out of the films citing creative differences, producer Manu Kumaran squashed the reports.
"For Amy to say that it didn’t work out creatively is completely wrong as she didn’t meet any of the two directors who are making these 4 movies. We have made several changes to the script and the films are going to be different in each language. We had planned on Amy initially, but it became clear that the character demanded a specific look and feel. Elli AvrRam and Shibani Dandekar will bring the much-required freshness to the movies" , Manu Kumaran said.
Starring Tamannaah Bhatia, Kajal Aggarwal, Manjima Mohan and Parul Yadav in the Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada remakes as main female leads, the first scheduled of the films will starts rolling in France.
