Kamal Haasan met Christopher Nolan in Mumbai and was surprised to know that the celebrated director had seen his 2015 film Papanasam.

Nolan -- who has made amazing movies like Memento, The Prestige, Inception, the Dark Knight series, Interstellar and Dunkirk -- is in India on a three-day trip along with visual artiste Tacita Dean.

His wife Emma Thomas -- who has produced all of Nolan's movies -- and their four children accompanied the legendary movie-maker.

'Met Mr Christopher Nolan. Apologized for seeing Dunkirk in the digital format and in return I am sending 'Hey Ram' in digital format for him to see. Was surprised to know he had seen 'Papanaasam',' Haasan tweeted, alongside a picture of himself with Nolan.

Filmmaker-archivist Shivendra Singh Dungarpur, who is hosting Nolan in Mumbai, hopes the director's trip to India will draw attention to the cause of film preservation and restoration.

After Nolan deliveres a lecture on Sunday, he will take part in a discussion with prominent Indian movie folk like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Kamal Haasan, Shyam Benegal and others.
