Shiamak To Choreograph Mission Impossible-4 In Dubai

The Indian guru of contemporary dance Shiamak Davar has accepted a choreography assignment for the film Mission Impossible-4  starring Tom Cruise, Hollywood stars Paula Patton and Jeremy Renner and  Bollywood's Anil Kapoor, reports Bombay Times.  

The report said,  renowned Hollywood costume designer Michael Kaplan of MI4 called Shiamak in September after seeing a video of his I Believe show. Kaplan, stunned by the spectacular production, thought the costumes were unbelievable and the choreography amazing.  

He told the MI4 producers that what he saw was of “international standards”. But what the Hollywood team did not reckon on was that Shiamak, who has dance schools around the world, might not have dates. And he only made the sets of MI4 mid-November.  

The dance sequence, involving girls of the Shiamak Davar's Institute for the Performing Arts (SDIPA), is supposed to be in a Jodhpur palace while an espionage scene featuring Cruise takes place.  

The icing on the cake was this: many crew members hired locally from Dubai, including engineers and techies, were Shiamak students because the SDIPA has been running a school there for four years. “And there was a buzz on the sets because they recognised him,” added the source.  

Even Tom Cruise was surprised! Shiamak, however, refused to confirm the news. He could have signed a confidentiality contract with MI4 that binds him from talking.  

What he did say was that he was “overjoyed to see Anil acting with Tom” because to him that represented the huge progress Bollywood had made internationally.
