  • Why Kamal Haasan apologized to Christopher Nolan?

While attending the ongoing "Reframing the Future of Film" in Mumbai, the 52-year-old had his "fanboy moment" when he met the Dunkirk Director Christopher Nolan, who is now on a three-day India trip along with visual artist Tacita Dean. "But the reality is that he told me a few years ago, and when I heard it I realised that it would be very hard for me to muster any enthusiasm for waking up early in the morning and going to work if there weren't a real film camera on the set". But the reality is, he told me the very same thing several years ago and when I heard it, I realised that it would be very hard for me as well, to muster any enthusiasm for getting up early in the morning and going to work if there wasn't a real film camera on the set.

Nolan said that people believe filmmaking is logical and pragmatic.

Nolan is being accompanied by his wife Emma Thomas and acclaimed visual artist Tacita Dean.

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.

Mets slugger Rusty Staub dead at 73
Staub, a six-time all-star, played 23 seasons from 1963 to 1985 with Houston, Montreal, the Mets, Detroit and Texas. The Mets came close to derailing what would become a three-peat dynasty in Oakland, losing in seven games.

Nolan's last film, Dunkirk, won the Oscars in the technical categories. He shot his documentary of archivist PK Nair, Celluloid Man (2012) on different film formats that he could find.

"We cant wait for this day when we are going to watch after 26 years a film on 70mm". We may live in a digital age, but we live in an analogue world. Besides Dungarpur, Dean and Nolan, other personalities like actors Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan, Shah Rukh Khan, designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, cinematographer Santosh Sivan and Kodak CEO, Jeff Clarke were also present. One of the interesting things about celluloid film is also; it really has a very good relationship with the real life; that for me at least, digital doesn't. Even superstar Shah Rukh Khan expressed his excitement for the medium for future projects.

To clear the misconception, Nolan said: "Well, yes, with the changing time, there is electronic and technology company who tried to change the industry in their own terms and that always remains the same in every media".
