Actress Sherlyn Chopra grabbed the paparazzi’s attention by grooving at the 66th Cannes International Film Festival wearing a white and gold Indian lehenga choli. She is there to promote her movie “Kamasutra 3D” with the team.
The film’s director Rupesh Paul told IANS how Sherlyn was “very excited and she grooved for the paparazzi without any hesitation”.
“It was the midnight screening of an Italian movie. Sherlyn was in a lehenga choli and the French media asked Sherlyn to pose. When the paparazzi encouraged her, she started dancing to my surprise,” said Paul.
“It was one of the choreographed numbers, which we trained her to shoot for ‘Kamasutra 3D’," he added.
Sherlyn, who last year became the first Indian actress to pose for adult film magazine Playboy, flaunted south Indian-style jewellery with the outfit, and donned minimal makeup.
This was her second time at the red carpet this year.
The actress tweeted her images from the red carpet for her fans.
Speaking about the event, Sherlyn claimed the paparazzi thought she was a star and that she had to dance for them before they let her go.
“Gettin' out of Grand Theatre Lumiere wasn't easy!!!! Had to convince the paparazzi that I was no STAR!!!!”, she wrote on the micro-blogging site. Adding, “And they didn't let me go until I danced for them!!!”
The film's team is there since May 15, when the fest took off, to unveil the second trailer of their film.
Before leaving for Cannes, Paul had told IANS that they will also be revealing the name of the Hollywood actress who will be the lead in the movie's sequel "Kamasutra 4D", at the fest.
