Days after the highly appreciated teaser, MX Player – India’s leading streaming entertainment platform has dropped the trailer of the series today, 5 th December. Directed by National Award winner Gautham Vasudev Menon and film director Prasath Murugesan, the series will see megastar Ramya Krishnan in as Queen.

Speaking about her character – Ramya said, “Some characters compel you to take on the challenge and being Shakthi was one of them. Be it her disciple, her will to defy the norm or her innocence in the hard world she lived in was something that appealed to me and I knew I must take up this project.”

Director Gautham Vasudev Menon further added saying, “Some stories deserve to be told and this was one of them. We’ve worked extremely hard on making the series and I couldn’t have asked for a better team to help me put this together.
