When Grace Of Monaco got terrible reviews at Cannes, Uday told IANS, "I do think it got unfairly reviewed at Cannes. We got panned by the critics at Cannes but there were reasons for that. Grace of Monaco is not a typical Cannes film, it was never part of the competition section and it just opened the festival. People in Cannes expect a certain kind of language, artistic (production), and this film was never supposed to have it as it's a fairy tale feel-good movie."
