It will be Queen, but not Queen: Ramesh Aravind
The director is done with most of shooting for the Kannada remake of Queen, titled Butterfly, and he is heading to Madurai soon to work with Kajal Aggarwal for the Tamil version Paris Paris
Director Ramesh Aravind has been busy directing the Queen remakes in Kannada and Tamil and has successfully completed most of the shooting.
The Kannada version with Parul Yadav titled Butterfly was partly shot in Gokarna, and the remaining, which was set in Europe, was shot simultaneously for the Tamil and Kannada versions. “I have one song left to shoot in Paris, for which we will go back in March. After that, I will have a bit of patch work to complete,” says the director.
The film's makers have shared Parul’s look during her portions in Gokrana. Clad in langa-blouse, Parul looks every bit a Kannada girl. Ramesh Aravind says that the film will be “Queen, but not Queen.”
The director is glad to have music director Amit Trivedi on board, who is debuting in Kannada and Tamil through this film. “Though he has composed the tunes for the original Bollywood, he has given us all new and spectacular tunes for the remakes. The Kannada lyrics written by Jayanth Kaikini add value to the songs,” he says.
Meanwhile, for the Tamil remake titled Paris Paris, Ramesh has completed the shoot with Kajal Aggarwal in Paris. “The scenes I shot in Gokarna with Parul will be shot again with Kajal in Virudunagar, Madurai,” he says.
The film also features Elli AvrRam and Varun Shashi in the cast, and has Sathya Hegde as its cinematographer.
