Earlier this month came the news that veteran Bollywood actor Dimple Kapadia will make her Hollywood debut in Christopher Nolan’s forthcoming global espionage thriller,” Tenet. The Dunkirk manager is expected to take a few parts of his movie in September.
As per a report at Mumbai Mirror, Nolan is going to be in Mumbai at mid-September and will take some parts of the movie.“Nolan was in Mumbai last year for an event hosted by Film Heritage Foundation’s Shivendra Singh Dungarpur on the need to promote the use, restoration and preservation of films. During his four-day stay he decided to shoot here, and in September will mostly be filming in south Bombay, around the Gateway of India, the Taj Mahal hotel and the Colaba Market.”
“Dimple plays a 60-plus lady who has a crucial role in the narrative. Her readings were done at a Sobo hotel,”the source added. The report also stated that the Mumbai program is expected to go on for seven to eight weeks and also a significant chase sequence is going to be canned throughout this interval. Tenet is supposedly an global espionage drama, taken across seven states such as US, Estonia, Italy, the UK besides India.
Dimpal was originally hesitant about the movie but decided to tape an audition, her profession’s first, ” the actor’s talent director, Purvi Lavigia Vats, told PTI. “We suggested her name for this film to them. Following which, I brought this up to her. She was initially a bit hesitant as she did not have an idea about her role in detail. I just briefed her. She got interested and taped her audition. This is the first time she auditioned for a film.”
Nolan, it appears, was convinced that Kapadia was the perfect choice after viewing the audition tape. “They’d come here (in Mumbai) lately to meet her. They were very interested in meeting her and to learn more about her,” Purvi explained.
Tenet is Nolan’s follow-up to his Oscar-nominated war play Dunkirk and moreover, Kapadia will comprise Robert Pattinson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Kenneth Branagh, Clemence Poesy, Michael Caine, John David Washington and Elizabeth Debicki inside.
