The first thing the actress crossed of the list is the look test, which she felt was important. City Express caught hold of the pictures and they show the actress looking every inch the girl-next door.

Varun Shashi Rao

Our source says, “Even though, the film has been inspired by Queen, Ramesh Aravind wants to retell the story that is all south Indian, and even infuse a freshness to this hit movie. Therefore, a lot of work is going into it.” Parul has been taking classes in diction, we hear. Our source says,

“Parul has been learning a special Kannada dialect for the film, because the character is from Gokarna, and their spken language is different from the more commonly heard Kannada.” The other locations chosen for the movie are Paris and Amsterdam, among other places.

While the preparations are on, Ramesh plans to go with the second schedule on the Kannada remake from October 4. Butterfly, made under Mediente International Films is being produced by Manu Kumaran. It has Mamtha Sagar writing the dialogues, and the cast includes Sudha Belvadi and Bhargavi Narayan.

Amy Jackson is to reprise the role of Lisa Haydon, in both Kannada and Telugu, and Varun Shashi Rao will also be a part of the bilingual. He will play Rajkummar Rao’s character from the original. Varun, who mesmerised everyone with his  Cadbury commercial is a software engineer from Bengaluru, who decided to follow his passion to work in movies. The actor has been part of Tamil films and now has been roped in by Ramesh Aravind for both the remakes. The bilingual film also marks the debut of cinematographer Sathya Hegde in Tamil.
