The passing away of one of the most influential and worshipped personalities in Indian politics, J Jayalalithaa on December 5, 2016, came across as a major shock to the state of Tamil Nadu. The Chief Minister of the state, late J Jayalalithaa effortlessly shifted from being a leading actress to a politician who changed the map of Tamil Nadu during her tenure. With the citizens of the state worshipping her like a Goddess, Thalaivi, as they fondly address her, left behind a legacy that can't be touched by anyone. Considering the impact she made, several producers and filmmakers decided on making her biopic and keep her alive in memories forever. While Kangana Ranaut will be narrating the tale on the silver screen through Thalaivi, South star Ramya Krishnan will be reprising late J Jayalalithaa on the digital platform with Queen. Marking the occasion of her third death anniversary, the makers of the digital show Queen, released the trailer on social media platforms on Thursday.
Speaking of the trailer, it traces the journey of Shakthi Seshadri, who wasn't just a topper in school but also an actress par excellence at a very tender age. Shifting from acting to politics, Shakthi managed to win over the hearts of all with a smile and a kind intention. From losing her faith in people to become a state's most trusted person, Shakthi's journey to becoming the 'Queen' is showcased in a beautiful manner.
Apart from Ramya, the web series stars Anikha Surendran, Anjana Jayaprakash, Indrajith Sukumaran, Vanitha Krishna Chandran, Viji Chandarsekaran and Sonia Aggarwal. Queen is directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon and Prasath Murugesan. It will stream in three languages that are Tamil, Hindi and Bengali from December 14 on MX Player.
