Amitabh Bachchan with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire

It’ll be one of the shortest roles you will ever see Amitabh Bachchan in. The Indian legend has a blink-and-you’ll-miss appearance in The Great Gatsby, where he plays the role of Meyer Wolfsheim.

Talking about the film on his blog, Bachchan said “It was a sheer delight to work with someone of such great genius as Baz Luhrmann and a host of co-stars that have astronomical presence in the world of cinema – Leonardo (DiCaprio) and Tobey (Maguire) and the other greats. The attention to detail, the amount of research and finesse on recreating the ‘times’ of NYC (New York City) in the those early years, was simply brilliant. I am certain that when you shall see the film, you will realize that you have indeed been transported to another decade of the early years with such authenticity that you begin to feel as though you were present there yourself. That really is the beauty of cinema and its technique.”

Bachchan also spoke about his experience of working with the Hollywood actors “The other factor of course is the dedication that all the crew and actors have towards the script the film and the production. Leonardo and Tobey would be more than willing to rehearse if you demanded it and would give each rehearsal the same deliverance as they would, were they to be asking for one themselves.”

The first trailer of The Great Gatsby, also featuring Amitabh Bachchan, will be released today. Meanwhile, have a look at a still from the film, where Amitabh Bachchan shares screen-space with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire (who played Spiderman)

  • S*ale srk fans sochte hain srk bahu bada star uski xtreme city ayegi.s*ale ko koi k*tta bhi nahi puchhta. akele mandrata rehta hai.s*ale ki koi aukat hai waisi film banane ki.agar apni poori jindagi bhi laga dega toh hollywood ek action ki bhi barabri nahi kar sakta.aur rahi baat ra1 ki toh is film ke action se lakhon achhi toh salman ki wanted ki action thi.cheap srk and srk fans

  • for those who think ra.one nd don 2 were flop…

    Define SRK- an actor whose flop film earns more than other actor’s blockbusters.

    and talking bout salman khan…..dis guy can’t act. He’s only having good time with fluke successes, same like Akshay Kumar enjoyed 3 years back…

    Define salman- apni sadi hui telegu tamil remake ki faaltu pakau boring acting se pareshan karne wala keeda…

  • Sallu fans are jeleous after hearing SRK’s Hollywood movie HAHAHA aise he jaltey Raho
    Q. Why do u think Hollywood directors do not prefer Sallu?
    Ans) 1. Sallu does not know acting.
    2. Always makes remake that’s why he is also known as remake khan and most of his blockbuster were remakes as well.
    3. He has given the most flops in the Industry.
    4. He shows of in front public by calling the media first and then doing charity.
    5. He was sent jail for doing criminal stuff.
    That’s why Hollywood directors do not prefer Sallu.
    And Sallu as a iron man HAHAHA it will be a big insult for iron man team.
    And today’s joke of the day
    Sallu is a actor.
