Tenet will not be Kapadia’s first appearance in an English language film. She was noted for her portrayal of the title role in the American production Leela (2002). As per reports, Tenet is Nolan’s follow-up to his Oscar-nominated war drama Dunkirk that earned the noted filmmaker his first best director Oscar nomination. Tenet, an action epic film, will be filmed across seven countries.
Warner Bros Pictures is distributing the film worldwide, which is scheduled to hit theaters on July 17 next year. Kapadia was launched by renowned filmmaker Raj Kapoor at the age of 16 in teen romance Bobby (1973). She received acclaim for her performances in films such as Rudaali (which earned her a National Film Award for Best Actress), Gardish, Krantiveer, Dil Chahta Hai, Being Cyrus, Finding Fanny and others. The actor, who married superstar Rajesh Khanna, was last seen in Anees Bazmee’s 2015 film Welcome Back.
