Ramesh Aravind: 'Butterfly' is a second original, not a remake

'Butterfly'- the remake of Queen is all set to hit the screens and actor-filmmaker Ramesh Aravind spoke candidly about the excitement and challenges of directing the film.

Speaking to Newsable at the launch of a new show by Big FM about remaking the blockbuster hit, Queen in two languages, Aravind said that it was more exciting than challenging. He spoke about the inevitable comparison that the audience may make between Kangana Ranaut and Parul Yadav or Kajal Aggarwal. "But I remember telling Parul and Kajal not to fill in Kangana's shoes, instead create something of their own," Aravind said. He also went on to say that although 'Butterfly' is a remake of ‘Queen’, it is nothing but a second original. "Remakes, usually are not well received in the industry, but some films deserve to be told to a larger audience," stated Ramesh Aravind.

Several actors in the film industry have spoken about pay disparity, and Ramesh Aravind too has admitted to the prevalence of it. He stated that it was an unfair practice, and no one should be subject to it.

On being questioned about his friends entering politics, an elated Ramesh Aravind spoke about his friend, Kamal Haasan, who is participating in the Lok Sabha assembly polls. Aravind said, "Kamal has always been inclined to politics, given his background. I am with him in spirit." However, despite his fan following across industries, Aravind said he has no plans of setting foot into politics. "One cannot play football with the rules of cricket. I may have a fan following but that should not be a reason for entering politics. One should have the passion for it."
