Christopher Nolan Reveals He’s Amazed By Mumbai And Its Passion For Cinema
Ahead of the film’s release, the ace filmmaker sent out a message to his fans in India. In the video, the director revealed, “Every time I visit India, I am struck by how unbelievably visual the place is. I had shot a short sequence in Jodhpur for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ and I always wanted to go back and film an important segment. ‘Tenet’ gave me the opportunity to do that. Mumbai is one of the most extraordinary-looking cities in the world. Be it the rich architecture, amazing people or the abundance of life on the streets, the city is truly fascinating. It’s a really remarkable place with this extraordinary history, so, to be able to take the audience there, it seemed a very exciting setting. The local crews are so passionate about cinema and Mumbai has a highly-developed film industry. So it was great fun teaming up with them, learning about how they make films and also cooperating with them in pulling off some remarkable things, including some of the first-ever aerial shots of Mumbai in a film.”The shoot locations for Tenet include iconic spots in Mumbai like Breach Candy Hospital, Cafe Mondegar, Colaba Causeway, Colaba Market, Gateway of India, Grant Road, Royal Bombay Yacht Club, and the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel.
