Sandip Soparrkar on Red Carpet at Nice International Film Festival 2016

NEW DEHI: World renowned Indian Choreographer Sandip Soparrkar was the only dancer actor who was invited to walk the Red Carpet and to give away the final grand Prize of "Best film" at the Nice International film festival recently.

The festival helps filmmakers find a market to support their aims. Many accomplished people who can give advice to work with established film industry professionals attend this ceremony and screening of films. A large number of meetings, networking, screening and deals take place at world famous Nice International film festival. Each year the festival is held on the French Riviera in the beautiful and splendid city of Nice.

Dressed in Indian attire, the dancer choreographer presented the finale award of "Best Film" to American producer Gabriel Schmidt for his film Hamlet's Ghost, directed by Walker Haynes.

He was seen wearing More Mischief and Deepak Shah designed pure white self-printed Shervani with dull gold traditional buttons. To add a dash of colour and glamour to the outfit his stylist Pooja Shah Bhandari teamed the look with a blood red rose just like the style of first Prime Minister of India Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.

Welcoming Soparrkar to the award ceremony, Festival President Carl Tooney said, "Sandip has now for several years, given up his time to encourage new talented filmmakers. He took time out of his busy schedule to support the Indy filmmakers at our film festival as they are just starting out- it is important that they get this support to continue their journey"

Speaking on the occasion, Soparrkar said, “I feel humbled to be the Guest of Honour at this wonderful film festival, where filmmakers come together as one family and not as competitors. This one of its kind festival is actually a home, where one can see the world cinema lovers unite together and cheer for one another."
