Amitabh Bachchan says that he will be seen in only one scene in the upcoming Hollywood film The Great Gatsby which is being directed by Baz Luhrmann. Moreover, it is a friendly appearance as Big B is not charging any fee.
Bachchan’s character, Meyer Wolfsheim, is an underworld don who helps the mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby make his money in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 novel.
Amitabh visited Australia last month to take part in a preliminary read-through of the script with the cast, as well as have hair, make-up and costume rehearsals. The lead cast of the film includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan.
