Gautham Menon is having issues with the release of his two films that are in the cans – Enai Noki Paayum Thota starring Dhanush and Dhruva Natchathiram starring Vikram – but it looks like his Queen will beat them both to the audience. This is the web series directed by Menon on J Jayalalithaa, the former chief minister of Tamil Nadu who passed away in December 2016.
Ramya Krishnan is playing the lead role in this 11 episode web series. On Saturday, Ramya released the first look poster that shows her as Jayalalithaa addressing a public meeting. She is clad in a white saree with a red and black border, the party colours.
Queen will stream on OTT platform MX Player. It has been co-directed by Prasanth Murugesan and will release in four languages.
A feature film starring Kangana Ranaut as Jayalalithaa is also in the works.
