Director Gautam Menon might be struggling to get his movies to cinemas, but he is one busy man. While Gautam Menon is waiting for the release of one film (Enai Noki Paayum Thota) and awaiting the completion of another (Dhruva Natchathiram), he has silently embarked on making a web series. What’s more, it might get over soon.
Titled Queen, the series will track the journey of late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jaya Lalitha. Ramya Krishna is essaying the title role. The first look poster of Queen is out and is a tease that promises a solid drama in the offering.
We only get a look of Ramya Krishna as Jaya Lalitha from behind. The overall dressing and posture make its mark. Queen will be an eleven episode series. Gautham Menon and Prasantha Murugesan handle the direction. The former will take care of the older life while the latter is said to focus on the childhood part.
Queen is an MX Player original series. It is co-written by Gautam Menon’s regular collaborator Reshma Ghatala. The show will not entirely be a real-life depiction. Certain portions are reportedly going to be fictionalised keeping the viewer’s perspective in mind.
