Christopher Nolan filmed a portion of his espionage epic “Tenet” in Mumbai, India, and loved it so much that he’s already thinking of ways to incorporate a return to the country in whatever projects will follow in the future. Speaking to India’s IANS news agency, Nolan said it was inspiring to meet filmmakers in Mumbai during his extended stay filming “Tenet.” The India-set portions of “Tenet” featured Dimple Kapadia, one of the country’s well-known actresses.

“I never make plans so far ahead. But I had an amazing experience in India, and I definitely want to come back and work more in India with Indian actors,” Nolan said. “I don’t know what I’m doing next.”

Nolan said some of his favorite images in “Tenet” are during the scenes set in India, adding about his time in the country, “I really had a tremendous experience. The love for films in that city is really palpable.”
