Queen, the critically acclaimed film of Kangana Ranaut , is in the process of being remade in several Indian languages, chiefly in south India.

The Malayalam remake will feature Manjima Mohan, who is currently shooting for the film in France, reports The News Minute. The actor posted a picture of herself on social media.
Manjima has been full of praise for Kangana’s performance and hoped she could live up to the standards set by the Bollywood actor, the report added.
The film is called Zam Zam in Malayalam. In Tamil, it is titled Paris Paris, its Kannada version is called Butterfly. The Tamil and Kannada remakes are being directed by Ramesh Aravind, its Telugu version will be directed by National Award-winning director G Neelakanta Reddy.
Looks like the shoot of the other versions of the film are also in progress. While Manjima’s recent social posts do not mention the place, those of Kajal Agarwal and Tammanaah did so. However, all three have shared one picture of the four of them together.
Kajal posted a picture and wrote: “kajalaggarwalofficial#parisparis #butterfly #zamzam #queenonceagain all in the same frame @tamannaahspeaks @manjimamohan @theparulyadav.”
Similarly, Tamannaah wrote: “Queen mode on! #ShootDiaries #MoviePromotions #Nice Styled by @SanjanaBatra Hair & Makeup @SoniaJain2610 Separates - @hm Coat- @veromodaindia Heels - @louboutinworld Assisted by @ashni4 @diyapitroda @shikha_14.”
In October, Tamannaah unveiled a poster of the Telugu film and captioned: “On the way to launch #Queen #Queenonceagain Telugu.”
