New York Cheers For Amitabh Bachchan At ‘The Great Gatsby’ World Premier


NEW YORK: At the World premiere of Hollywood film “The Great Gatsby”, the noise went up for a moment and the US media was left wondering if Leonardo DiCaprio had come, but it was actually Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

An overwhelmed Big B put up a series of tweets:

“The Great Gatsby”, directed by Baz Luhrmann, marks Amitabh’s Hollywood debut. He plays Meyer Wolfsheim in the $125 million 3D project, an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel of the same name.

The movie, which also stars Tobey Maguire and Leonardo Di Caprio, will open the 66th edition of Cannes International Film Festival, starting May 15. Amitabh will join the team on the red carpet there too
