Steven Spielberg calls Sandip Soparrkar “Indian Dancer” on the red carpet of Cannes film festival

The most talked about Cannes film festival began with an aplomb on 11th May in the French Riviera. Many popular films are being premiered at the ongoing 69th Cannes film festival and a lot of world famous faces are making their presence felt on the red carpet.

Celebrated Indian dancer-choreographer Sandip Soparrkar who is at Cannes representing the Indian dance and Bollywood industry too made his red carpet appearance on Saturday 14th May.

Soparrkar swayed in wearing a Deepak Shah designed black and grey tuxedo matched with a red bow tie to see Steven Spielberg film “The BFG” which was being premiered at the Grand Theatre Lumiere. We overheard the oscar winning director Spielberg look at Sandip post his red carpet walk and say “Indian Dancer”. Sandip graciously wished the director and looked completely thrilled by being recognised by the world-renowned filmmaker.

Being spotted on the red carpet and being recognised for one’s work are two different things, it is sure a moment of pride for the graceful dancer as well as for the Indian dance scene for being acknowledged by world renowned person like Steven Spielberg.
