The report further suggests that director Olivier Dahan has been at odds with Weinstein Co (distributors for the movie) over the film, and that Dahan publicly complained last earlier that the company wanted changes made against his wishes. “…when you confront an American distributor like Weinstein, not to name names, there is not much you can do,” Olivier had told French newspaper, Liberation, at the time.
The movie has now been taken off the release calendar by The Weinstein Company, and they have not explained the decision. Earlier, it was also reported that Monaco’s royal family had criticised the script, saying it gives an inaccurate view of the late Princess Grace.
Despite repeated attempts, Uday, who is presently out of the country, could not be reached for a comment. However, Rafiq Gangjee, the official spokesperson of Yash Raj Films (YRF Entertainment is the banner under which Uday is co-producing the film) says, “The Weinstein Company is the US distributor, and they are in the process of deciding on an alternate release date that would best suit the film.”
