Queen is a Bollywood comedy-drama film directed by Vikas Bahl as well as produced by Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane, and Madhu Mantena that was released in 2014. Kangana Ranaut plays a major role, alongside Lisa Haydon and Rajkummar Rao providing supporting performances. The movie follows the story of Rani Mehra, a shy Punjabi girl representing New Delhi that goes on her honeymoon by herself in Paris and Amsterdam when the fiancé cancels the marriage. Queen’s screenplay was co-written by Bahl, Chaitally Parmar, and Parveez Shaikh. The movie’s dialogues were written by Anvita Dutt Guptan. Ranaut is credited as a supplementary dialogue writer after Bahl pushed her to compose her words while shooting.
