"Ever since I saw 'Queen', I wanted to be part of its remake, even though I wasn't sure if it will be remade. What makes 'Queen' special is that it's one of those rare women-centric films which succeeded in reaching out to everybody, across all sections of the audience," Tamannaah told IANS about the Kangana Ranaut-starrer.
Having waited over a year for the opportunity, she said she is very excited.
"I felt liberated when I saw 'Queen', and I can't wait to start working on the remake. The fact that Revathi ma'am is directing it makes it even more special because she was the inspiration for my character in 'Devi'," she said.
The film will feature dialogues by actress-filmmaker Suhasini Mani Ratnam.
"I think it's going to be a great combination. More than a remake, this will be treated as an adaptation as a lot of things have to be changed to suit Tamil sensibilities," added Tamannaah.
In 'Kaabil', directed by Sanjay Gupta, the duo will be seen together on the big screen for the first time.
'Kaabil' is produced by the Hrithik's father Rakesh Roshan.
