If Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan is to be believed, ace Hollywood director Christopher Nolan is going to make another visit to India in March. The iconic director has given the world some cinematic masterpieces like Inception, Interstellar, Batman trilogy etc.
Big B took to his official blog to announce the news.
The Bollywood actor stated that the critically acclaimed director will be visiting India to garner his support for the Kodak's new facility.
The blog also says that the director is now shifting towards the usage of traditional films instead of digital ones.
"It is all about to change yet again... Kodak that largest name for film is coming back... Many in the world of direction and production are finding values in the product done on film to be the more liked subject...
So like 'Dunkirk' the film by that renowned Christopher Nolan uses only film for his pictures... 'Dunkirk' was not digital it was film... And in a month or so the man himself, Mr Nolan, is coming to India to inaugurate or at least lend support to a few matters," Bachchan wrote on his blog.
Bachchan along with most of us are much excited about Nolan’s visit to the country. This is the second time Nolan would be coming to India. Earlier in 2012 while shooting for The Dark Knight Rises which was the final movie in his Batman trilogy. He stayed in Jodhpur, at that time.
