The actor-turned-politician took to Twitter to share a picture of their rendezvous. When he met Nolan recently, the director is presently in town, he admitted to it.

You can not miss a chance to meet Christopher Nolan when you know he is in your town.

Nolan was set to present his films "Dunkirk" and "Interstellar" in 70mm and 35mm formats to audiences in India, organisers said.

Well, Kamal Haasan watched Dunkirk in the digital format. "I'm trying to empower filmmakers to view their choices of the medium as one more thing they have to fight for", said filmmaker Christopher Nolan as he tried to explain why he has never compromised with shooting on celluloid film and is today spearheading the initiative to "save film".

The industry round table at Yash Raj Studios in Andheri was attended by the heavyweights of Indian cinema like actors Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Kamal Haasan and Jaya Bachchan; cinematographers Santosh Sivan and Sudeep Chatterjee; filmmaker Shyam Benegal. Hence, let's see what happened in upcoming days of Nolan's trip.

"We are fighting to save celluloid films in India whereas people are disbanding it without realising their importance", said Dungarpur.

Kamal Haasan also met Christopher Nolan on Friday hours after he arrived in India.

"Nolan is coming to India to talk about the advent of celluloid and shooting films in celluloid, something that he prefers".

Nolan was referring to an effort to promote celluloid that he initiated in Hollywood in 2015, along with famous visual artist Tacita Dean. He is also going to talk about how the celluloid medium can co-exist with the digital mode. He continues to use the traditional film for his movies.

Dungarpur, 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.
