After days of is Christopher Nolan coming, is he not, the mystery has been solved but it is unlikely to make the Indian fans of the Inception filmmaker happy. The long and short of it is that he's not coming and it was all a big misunderstanding.
On October 27, organisers of IIT Bombay's festival Mood Indigo revealed on Facebook and Twitter that the director would be in India to attend the event on December 28.
Media went into frenzy and fans took to social media in overwhelming numbers. As it turned out two days later, it was much too soon. Nolan's rep told Hollywood Reporter that he had no plans to attend the event and is not even aware of it.

The organisers, meanwhile, kept silent on the issue. In a Facebook post, they have now accepted that Nolan is not coming to India. "We sincerely apologise for all the confusion surrounding our tribute to Mr. Nolan. Mood Indigo's tweet and Facebook post (27th October) of announcing Mr. Nolan's presence at the MI 2014 was incorrect. We regret the announcement and the consequent social media outbreak," said the post.
