UK Actor strikes it big on the Cote d’Azur when it comes to selfies (not his word) with some of the festival’s hottest draws…he talks to us about what it means…

Best seen on some internet browsers on desktop or tablet…sorry!

WHILE the big guns of Bollywood certainly had their moments at the 71st Cannes Film Festival – most noticeably on the Red Carpet there, another lesser-known actor got in on the act and posted a range of pictures with global stars.

London-based Prashant Kapoor is one of the actors in ‘Boogie Man’ a British feel-good-song and dance movie that had its world premiere at the UK Asian Film Festival in March.

He was in Cannes not only to promote his film to the world’s film press and cinema distributors, but engage in some marketing assignments and seek out casting directors for his own future work.

That he did, but he went far beyond his brief and managed to bag valuable time with not only with Bollywood leading lady of the moment – Deepika Padukone but the Queen of the Croisette herself – Aishwarya Rai, who has been there for L’Oréal Paris as an ambassador for more than 10 years.

Kapoor spoke to us the day after about that now infamous selfie with Padukone at the Martinez Hotel. That short clip is here – the full interview is below.

He didn’t stop there and has to have one of the most celebrity/supermodel/starry Instagrams of all Cannes in 2018.

He thinks of them not as selfies but fan moments.

“The selfies weren’t fan moments. They just followed on from my chats to all these people about my film screening and an interest in what I do, as well as me liking their work.

“So actor-to-actor meets really – albeit they are superstars and I am small compared to them.

“An abiding memory would be, getting the opportunity to meet talent and get advice and be part of the one world we belong to: films,” he told

A producer as well, he made the most of his Cannes experience – his third in all.

“I was also talking to other film companies about collaborations on film productions.”
