Indian filmmaker Shivendra Singh Dungarpur, the founder of the Film Heritage Foundation (FHF), is hosting Nolan at a three-day event "Reframing the Future of Film" here from March 30 to April 1.
"Nolan, his wife and acclaimed producer Emma Thomas Nolan and their children were treated with a warm traditional Indian welcome", the source told IANS.
"Was surprised to know he had seen "Paapanaasam"," added the actor, who met Nolan here on Friday. The actor said that he apologized to the director for watching only the digital version of "Dunkirk".
"We are delighted to know that two of world's greatest filmmaker and visual artists are coming to our country to support a cause for cinema". Nolan has come here for a very specific reason which is to shine the light upon usage of films to shoot a film instead of chipping in memory cards and than displaying it on the screen. But there are also those who haven't watched Dunkirk in a theatre and Kamal Haasan is one such person. Nolan, who is renowned for movies such as "Inception", "Interstellar", the "Dark Knight" trilogy and the most recent "Dunkirk", could possibly be making an India-centric movie, reports claim.
Not only Kamal Haasan, acclaimed cinematographer Santosh Sivan, who is now working with Mani Ratnam on the multi-starrer Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, was also present at the post event dinner.
The Hollywood director is expected to fly out on April 2.
