Uday Chopra is now on an international podium. After a not so great innings as an actor in Bollywood, Uday turned producer with his Hollywood film, Grace of Monaco, which is all set to be premiered at 2014 Festival de Cannes.
Directed by French director Olivier Dahan who made Oscar winning movies like Le Vie Emn Rose, Grace of Monaco is Yash Raj Films first Hollywood project by Uday Chopra. The film stars Tim Roth and Nicole Kidman in the main cast, and is a story that takes place in 1956 France. The Prince Rainer III played by Tim Roth marries Grace Kelly played by Nicole Kidman, who later becomes the Princess Grace of Monaco. The rest of the plot is all about how Grace fights a difficult political situation for France and wins over.
Chopra is one happy man – “I knew from the moment I read the script that we had something special in Grace of Monaco. I feel proud that YRF Entertainment has managed to reach this milestone with its first release” – he said in a statement issued by Yash Raj Films.
