Published: 26th September 2017

Tamannaah Bhatia, who has been roped in for the Telugu remake of the Kangana Ranaut starrer Queen, says roles that put the spotlight on women empowerment motivate her.

"Queen is an interesting film. I have always been motivated by roles that help support women empowerment in some form. I am very excited to be starring in the Telugu version and can't wait to start shooting next month. This is the first time I'm working with Neelakanta Reddy and I'm sure together we will create magic on the 70 mm screen," says the actress

The Hindi movie, which was directed by Vikas Bahl, is being remade in Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam apart from Telugu.

The Telugu film will be produced by Manu Kumaran under the banner of Mediente Films, with National award winner G Neelakanta Reddy in the director's chair. The remake is scheduled to go on the floors on October 25 and will have a release mid-2018.
