Ahead of Mr Nolan's arrival in India, this is what Mr Dungarpur had told IANS: "Nolan is coming to India to talk about the advent of celluloid and shooting films in celluloid, something that he prefers. He is also going to talk about how the celluloid medium can co-exist with the digital mode. Nolan and Tacita Dean are coming to support the cause of celluloid film. With their visit, along with the participation of some of the who's who of our Indian film industry, hopefully, the talk and encouragement of shooting and projecting film in celluloid will start."

Big B wrote about how Mr Nolan's Dunkirk was shot on the traditional format and what can we expect from the director during his visit: "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."
