It appears that Amy Jackson had too much on her plate till she set her priorities straight. Between an American TV show and a South remake of Kangana Ranaut's Queen, Amy reportedly made her choice and opted for the former. Speaking to DNA, Amy said that she had to pick one because of clashing schedules: "It didn't work out because of the schedule for Supergirl. It didn't work out creatively." Amy Jackson was being considered for the part played by Lisa Haydon in the original movie. "I really wanted to be a part of the project. It's a fun, fierce role. I loved Lisa's role in the Hindi version and thought I could do justice to it for the remake," Amy told DNA.

But sources close to the development also suggest another reason for Amy to have opted out of the project - she was reportedly not pleased with the character development. However, she told DNA that her character had more screen time in the remake than the original one had for Lisa: "I met the director and producer several times. They, in fact, developed my character more." Amy Jackson was reportedly offered a whopping sum to join the cast "but she didn't agree," a source told DNA.

Tamannaah Bhatia headlines the Telugu remake of Queen while Kajal Aggarwal has been roped in to play the protagonist in the Tamil remake of Queen.
