Tamannaah Bhatia, who has acted in  more than 50 films in three different languages, including the Baahubali series, is understood to have bagged the lead role in the Telugu version of Kangana Ranaut-starrer "Queen".
Tamannaah has been focusing on women-centric films like Kalloori , Ananda Thandavan, Kanden  Kadhalai, 100% Love and Devi over the past one decade.
The Telugu version of Queen will be produced by Manu Kumaran under the banner of Mediente Films. National award winning director and a South favourite,  G. Neelakanta Reddy will be directing the Telugu remake and the film will go on the floors on October 25.
The entire film will be shot in an international locale and will release in the middle of next year, sources said.
The sources said Tamannaah was initially approached to play the lead protagonist in both the Tamil and Telugu versions of the critically acclaimed Queen but signed only the Telugu version citing creative preferences.
“Queen is an interesting film and I have always been motivated by roles that help elevate women empowerment in some form. I am very excited to be doing 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.”
The South remakes of Vikas Bahl’s Queen will be made in Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam apart from Telugu.
Tamannaah who started off at the age of 15 in the film industry, has worked with a list of notable actors including Ranveer Singh, Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Ajay Devgan, Mahesh Babu, Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Dhanush, Allu Arjun, Ram Charan, amongst others. In the past she has acted in the South remakes of Bollywood films like Jab We Met, Kick and Rowdy Rathore.
She is the first actress from India who was nominated at Saturn Awards for Best Supporting Actress.
