  Amy Jackson’s claims are wrong: Producer

Elli AvRam has been cast in the Tamil and Kannada remakes of Hindi entertainer Queen, while Shibani Dandekar has been zeroed in for its Telugu and Malayalam versions. The actresses will be reprising the role played by Lisa Haydon in the original, and the producer says they will lend "freshness" to the remakes.

Earlier, Amy Jackson was to play this role in all four versions. But, the actress walked out of the film citing creative differences and non-availability of dates.

Producer Manu Kumaran said in a statement: "We have made several changes to the script and the films are going to be different in each language. We had planned on casting Amy Jackson initially, but it became clear that the character demanded a specific look and feel. Elli AvrRam and Shibani Dandekar will bring some much-required freshness to the films".

He is upset over Amy's claims. "For Amy to say that it didn't work out creatively is completely wrong as she didn't meet either of the two directors who are making these four films."

The makers of the film will be kickstarting their first schedule in France. Starring Tamannaah Bhatia, Kajal Aggarwal, Manjima Mohan and Parul Yadav as the lead in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada, respectively, the remake will be sequentially be shot at various locations.
