Kajal Aggarwal's Tamil Queen remake, Paris Paris, in censor trouble
While the Kannada and Malayalam censor boards have certified the movie with no cuts, the Tamil version has reportedly attracted several blurs, as well as audio and video cuts from the board
The successful Bollywood film, Queen, is being remade in all four South Indian languages - Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam - by Producer Manu Kumaran under his home banner, Mediente Films.
While the Tamil version, starring Kajal Aggarwal, has been titled Paris Paris, Tamannaah's version in Telugu is named That's Mahalakshmi. The Malayalam version, Zam Zam, and the Kannada version, Butterfly, stars Manjima Mohan and Parul Yadav, respectively.
While the Kannada and Malayalam censor boards have certified their respective Queen remakes with no cuts, the Tamil version has reportedly attracted several blurs, as well as audio and video cuts from the board.
The production team, which is apparently keen on retaining all the scenes in Paris Paris, has decided to take their movie up to the Revised Committee for review, and the necessary approvals.
Interestingly, a shot from the trailer - which had Elli Avram, who plays Kajal’s friend in the film, grabbing Kajal's breasts - had raised many an eyebrow, when it was released a year ago. The original version in Hindi had a similar scene played by Kangna Ranaut and Lisa Hayden. The film’s director Ramesh Aravind had then clarified that when people watch the film, they will understand the need for the scene.
