I read the following sentence today, in a newspaper,
Recently while promoting his upcoming release Secret Superstar in Vadodara, Aamir Khan opened up about his dream project, Mahabharata.
My question is that whether we should place a comma before 'Mahabharat,' or not?
In the abovementioned link of a Grammarly post, the sub-section Comma with appositives states this rule that when the appositive is an essential one, then it shouldn't be separated with a comma.
In the above sentence, Mahabharat is the name of the dream project which Aamir opens up about. And hence, it seems to be an essential appositive.
Following the same track, this is a sentence from a Wikipedia's Good Article:
Having made his directorial debut with Following (1998), Nolan gained considerable attention for his second feature, Memento (2000).
Should a comma be placed before the name of the film Memento?
