Royal Wedding Goes Bollywood

Famed Indian Choreographer Booked to Perform at Will and Kate's Reception

On the night of the royal wedding reception, renowned Bollywood performer Sandip Soparrkar will dance for Prince William and Kate Middleton, The Press Trust of India reports.

Soparrkar is a famous Indian entertainer known for choreographing Britney Spears's "Womanizer" music video. He and his wife and dance partner, model Jesse Randhawa, previously performed for Katy Perry's 2010 nuptials to Russell Brand. In 2008, the couple also performed for Madonna's 50th birthday party.

In 2005, Prince Charles sent Soparrkar a royal letter of recognition for his career promoting ballroom dancing in India.

The organizers for the post-royal wedding dinner dance wanted a combination of Bollywood and traditional English waltz. A source confirmed to New Delhi Television, "Bollywood is a big thing in the U.K. thanks to the Indian diaspora, and the performance will be the last dance, and they wanted it to be a fun way to end the evening."
