Actress Tamannaah Bhatia, who is all set to star in the Telugu remake of Kangana Ranaut's 2014 blockbuster film Queen, is confident that the team will be able to 'recreate the magic,' reports news agency IANS. The film was officially launched today and has been titled Queen Once Again. "It's an exciting project and I love doing roles that talk about women empowerment. I'm confident we can recreate the magic of the original. At the same time, not make our film look like a frame-to-frame remake. We'll adapt it to suit Telugu sensibilities," she told IANS. Kangana's Queen was directed by Vikas Bahl and the film fetched the actress a National Award for Best Actress.
