Along with releasing the poster of the series titled Queen, the makers also announced that the trailer will be released on December 5. In the first-look poster, Ramya Krishnan looks believable as J Jayalalithaa and is seen clad in a white saree. Her fans seem to agree with the fact and have been showering praises on the actress’s conviction.
A few days ago, the makers unveiled the teaser of the web series which gave us a glimpse of the Queen. The teaser lists out Jayalalithaa’s achievements at several stages of her life and how she became the youngest chief minister of Tamil Nadu.

Queen will be released on the streaming platform MX player. The release date of the series will be announced in the coming days.
