It has been reported that the cast and crew of Tenet will shoot the film in South Mumbai for 10 days. Last year, Christopher Nolan had visited India in March to create awareness about celluloid films in the digital era and to "engage with people from one of the greatest film cultures in the world." He had also met several celebrities such as Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan and Shah Rukh Khan back then. In an interview with news agency IANS, the director revealed his motive behind his three-day visit to India and said: "One of the reasons why I am here in India, other than I believe in the cause of saving celluloid films, is to meet more people from the Indian film industry and engage with the people from one of the greatest film cultures of the world... To learn more about it."
Tenet is a thriller written and directed by Christopher Nolan. It is being produced by Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas. The film, which is a high-octane action espionage drama, will extensively be shot across seven countries. It is expected to open in theatres in July next year.
