Kamal Haasan apologizes to Christopher Nolan!

Why Kamal Haasan apologized to Christopher Nolan?

The creator of films like Dunkirk, Interstellar, Inception, The Prestige, Memento and The Dark Knight trilogy, Hollywood filmmaker, Christopher Nolan, is in India to promote film preservation and restoration, a cause he is absolutely passionate about. "My fanboy moment. Inspiring to hear Nolan and Tacita Dean talk of the virtues of celluloid as an artist's medium", the Jab Harry Met Sejal actor tweeted on Saturday. "I am looking forward to watching more Indian films in future", Nolan said in a group interview.

The industry round table at Yash Raj Studios in Andheri was attended by the heavyweights of Indian cinema like actors Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Kamal Haasan and Jaya Bachchan; cinematographers Santosh Sivan and Sudeep Chatterjee; filmmaker Shyam Benegal. The director believes filmmaking is an emotional process and as he works towards preserving films, he wants people to not analyse cinema on "logical terms". Will we see that changing since we live in a digital age and social media is big, today?

You are considered to be a traditionalist who continues to support film as an art form, while your movies are quite futuristic. "But at the moment it's really about getting people to experience and getting them to hand these equipments". Nolan took Kamal to surprise when he revealed that he had watched his film, Papanassam. "My personal aim is that I want it to become normal to shoot on film". Tacita in her presentation yesterday, talked about how she uses digital technology to make the masks that go into her camera, that then allows her to do multiple exposures on celluloid films. "In America, there are theatre chains that conduct workshops, something that Shivendra (Singh Dungarpur, founder of Film Heritage Foundation) is also doing in India".
