Uday Chopra goes Hollywood – Rubs shoulders at Cannes with Nicole KidmanSadly enough, Uday Chopra, the son of highly successful film maker Yash Chopra, could not make it big in Bollywood. After a dream debut with superhit ‘Mohabbatein’, the actor has only ‘Dhoom’ and its sequel which can be counted as successful films in his career.
Disheartened by this fact, the actor turns to the West for rescue. Uday now heads YRFE, which was established last November as a subsidiary of Yash Raj Films to develop, finance, and produce English language films for the U.S. and global markets. Uday is reportedly producing ‘The Longest Week’, starring Jason Bateman, Billy Crudup and Olivia Wilde and to be directed by Peter Glanz.
Justifying his action, Uday says, “My family has a deep commitment to making and distributing quality films that entertain and enlighten audiences. I share that passion, as well as a love for American films that I have had since childhood. It is that enthusiasm and my love of the creative process of filmmaking that drove me to start this new venture.”
Uday has also teamed with Pierre-Ange Le Pogam of Parisian company Stone Angels to produce and finance the upcoming Nicole Kidman project, Grace of Monaco. The film will be directed by Olivier Dahan and deals with the story of efforts by the late Princess Grace of Monaco (the former Grace Kelly, played by Nicole Kidman) to make peace between her adopted country and France.
Uday says, “Grace of Monaco is the kind of movie that has a perfect blend of talent and sensibility that YRF Entertainment is proud to be a part of.”
What Bollywood could not do it for Uday, Hollywood is doing it and a proud Uday gets to walk the red carpet at Cannes this year rubbing shoulders with Nicole Kidman!!
