The road for the release of Queen was surrounded after J Jayalalitha's niece Deepa Jayakumar approached the Madras High Court for a stay on the web series and Kananga Ranaut’s Thalaivi which is a biopic J. Jayalalithaa. Deepa alleged the project can misinterpret facts and can damage her image. Deepa wanted an assurance the makers of the film and web series to give a guarantee that facts wouldn't be misrepresented and had sought the court's help in the matter.
