Lisa Haydon, model and actress who green-lighted her career with AISHA, enacts Vijaylakshmi in QUEEN.
Says Vikas Bahl, ''The character of Vijaylakshmi in QUEEN is that of a very free-spirited girl. I met Lisa and I found her to be such an interesting person, that I re-worked the character of Vijaylakshmi. I tweaked the character to suit Lisa.''
Adds he significantly, ''I thought that Lisa was way more free-spirited than what I could conceive as a person. So I was willing to re-look at that character and do it in such a manner that Lisa would do an even better job of it, than what I had conceived.''
QUEEN details the life and times of a small-town Indian girl, who decides to go on her honeymoon alone...owing to a twist of Destiny! When premiered at the Busan Film Festival in October 2013, QUEEN romped home with rave reviews too.
Presented by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, QUEEN is a Phantom Production. The Kangana Ranaut-starrer is directed by Vikas Bahl and produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures, Vikramaditya Motwane & Anurag Kashyap. QUEEN which also stars Rajkummar Rao and Lisa Haydon is slated to hit screens, come March 7, 2014.
