Tamanna’s Greed Killed ‘Queen’!
We have already reported that the Telugu-Tamil remake of Bollywood blockbuster film ‘Queen’ was shelved. Senior actor and filmmaker Thyagarajan, who was planning to remake Queen with Tamanna in lead role, has now reportedly revealed that her exorbitant demands for remuneration forced him to shelve the project.
Thyagarajan had acquired the Southern remake rights of Queen some two years ago. Ever since he has approached several actresses right from Nayanthara, Anushka, Trisha to Samantha but he somehow decided to make the film with Tamanna. He even made a formal announcement regarding the same.
Just the other day, news broke out that the Queen remake was shelved. Thyagarajan has now cited that he couldn’t meet the staggering remuneration demands of Tamanna. In fact, he has already invested good sum for remake rights and since it is a heroine oriented subject, its box office prospects are also not too bright. He must have felt that he couldn’t make the film within budget if he splurges money on Tamanna herself.
He could have gone for the likes of Nitya Menen but then he needed a star heroine to pull crowds.
