The teaser of upcoming web series Queen - based on the life of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and actor J. Jayalalithaa - was unveiled on Sunday.
The 26-second video teases with shots of Jayalalithaa from various phases of her life. It presents the first glimpse of Ramya Krishnan as Jayalalithaa without revealing her face.
A production of MX Player, the series has been jointly directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon and Prasath Murugesan of Kidari (2016) fame.
The show categorizes Jayalalithaa’s life into three segments. It will focus on her life as a school-going girl, a teenager, and the phase when she joined politics, taking over MG Ramachandran’s place after his demise.
The teaser gives us a quick glimpse into the three phases of her life. While Gautham Menon has directed five episodes, Prasath has directed five too. Two episodes have been jointly directed by both of them.
MX Player hasn’t officially revealed yet when it will air the show. However, reports have already emerged that they’ve commissioned the second season.
Gautham currently has two projects in his kitty. He has a film titled Joshua, with actor Varun in the pipeline. He is also reported to have signed on a project with Suriya, and the yet-untitled film will be bankrolled by Lyca Productions.
Meanwhile, Gautham’s latest release Enai Noki Paayum Thota is currently running in cinema. The film, which released after a delay of three years, stars Dhanush, Megha Akash and Sasikumar in crucial roles.
