Rahul confirms, "I didn't mind them using Linus and Nandita's face in the US because they wanted to position the film as a love story but when they used the same picture in India as well, I was hopping mad! Normally, I have an image clause in all my contracts which states how exactly my image should be positioned but for Before The Rains I didn't, as the film was handled by my American manager and the producer was American too."
Rahul is however quick to assure us that now the issue has been sorted out. "After I spoke to them, I realised that their intentions were not vindictive. They told me that these were the only artworks available. Now they have released posters with my solo pictures."
Co-producer Mubina Ratton-say says, "Yes, there were a few issues and they have been well sorted out. We, collectively, are extremely proud and happy, the film being an English language art-house film has done well in the US and now, has seen the light of day in India." Santosh Sivan says, "It was just a case of miscommunication. Rahul is a dear friend of mine and I wouldn't want him to feel bad. These things happen sometimes."
