However, the story of the hard-working father remained unknown to the general public for years. He got his due credit when the film King Richard portrayed the journey of the Williams sisters from Richard Williams’ point of view.

Last year, Isha Price, sister of Serena Williams, who joined the film as executive producer, narrated a story from the script that was later altered due to its hilarious and awkward nature.

An unrealistic scene in the original script

When Price came in as executive producer, her first preference was to make the story more realistic. However, there was one particular scene with her mother and Richard that made her laugh out loud. Here’s what she said about the scene.

“In one of the original iterations of the script, when Daddy got beat up once, my mom met him in the hospital and ran alongside the gurney and said, ‘What did they do to my husband?’ I thought, ‘Oracene? Never.'”

She further revealed her mother’s reaction to it.

“My mom said, ‘What are you laughing at?’ And I read her that part and she’s like, ‘Oh fuck no!’”
