Queen – An Ode to the Delhi Girl!

Posted in

There are scenes in "Queen" that only a Delhi-ite or an Indian girl can relate to. A girl on all fours on the ground writhing and crying as she calls her mummy to help her from the goon who is trying hard to get her purse from her. She wails loudly but doesn’t for a moment let go her grip on the bag, clutching it tightly between her legs! This happens in Paris where later after a few drinks she climbs on a bar table and tries to dance. Trying to mimic the sexy moves of other girls she takes off her sweater and whirls it around only to stuff it in her big bag to be stowed away safely!
