“If something sad happens in one’s life, one should not cry over it. Go out into the world; there’s a lot to explore,”

~ Watch how tragedy turns into celebration, by catching the MAX premiere of ‘Queen’ at 8pm on Sunday 31st August
Mumbai, 21st August, 2014: Catch the refreshingly real, sweet, sensitive, fun social drama of ‘Queen’ which will premiere on MAX, the premium Hindi movies channel on Sunday 31st August at 8 pm.
The movie tells the tale of a diffident, shy and small town girl Rani (Kangana Ranaut) whose wedding gets called off by her fiancée just two days before the scheduled day. However instead of falling prey to self-pity and regret, she decides to embrace life thus opening her up to a world of new possibilities and experiences. In turn, she learns to love herself once again and sheds her inhibitions to make new friends, travel, dance and most importantly to be ‘happy’ irrespective of how life pans out.
Talking about tackling ‘Queen’ like situations in one’s life, lead actress Kangana says, “If your equation with a person fails, it doesn’t mean that you have failed. I’ve learnt to deal with rejection, or what you call ‘dumping’ but for many it becomes a huge crisis. I believe a person has all the right to decide whether or not he/she wants to stay in a relationship. I respect the other person’s decision, keep myself emotionally strong and work towards ending the pain.”
Commenting on how the movie has managed to make that connect with the audience, Director Vikas Bahl, says, “I think it is very relatable. It’s relatable yet funny, that combination is what makes it interesting. You can immediately see that you can connect with the girl and then you connect with the way she talks and then you connect with the humour that’s in it. So it seems like it’s straight out of your life, which I think works.”
