It's his debut international project in an acting career of four decades. And even if he has a blink-and-you-miss-it role in "The Great Gatsby", Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan is happy about sharing the frame with Hollywood biggies leonardo Di Caprio and Tobey Maguire.
"I play Meyer Wolfsheim for about a few seconds... yaa...by the time you look down on your popcorn to pick another morsel, I'd be gone from the film... he he... kinda short service," the actor posted on his blog bigb.bigadda.com.
Though for a short while, Amitabh will be seen sharing the screen space with Hollywood stars Tobey Maguire and leonardo Di Caprio.
"Mr leonardo de Caprio - he be soo gorgeous, no wonder all the ladies flockin' to him He be Gatsby, and spiderman Tobey Maguire be his good friend. But sittin' in the frame talkin' to spiderman and D (leonardo), was pretty darn okaaay ! whadya' say, me members of the extended families !! But they be nice and polite people, I'll say that .. nice and polite," he added.
The $125 million project is a 3D adaptation of the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel of the same name.
The film talks about Nick Carraway, a Midwesterner now living on long Island, who finds himself fascinated by the mysterious past and lavish lifestyle of his neighbour, Jay Gatsby. He is drawn into Gatsby's circle, becoming a witness to obsession and tragedy.
Other cast members for "The Great Gatsby" include Joel Edgerton, Carey Mulligan and Isla Fisher.

But Big B did it as courtesy to the filmmaker too you guys. He did the role for free.
Big B takes pride in Hindi cinema, while Mr. Anil Kapoor is pathetically always putting himself down for Hollywood.
There's a big difference
I can't wait for TGG! The cast is amazing and yeah Big B doesn't have a major role in, but to be a part of such greatness must feel awesome too. Love his honesty and yes Big B, Leo is gorgeous!
Why is he speaking in archaic terms?...he be, he be, they be...LOL.
Bachchan senior has lost it! Senility probably. And why is he so delighted to get a miniscule role in Great Gatsby? Hes India's megastar, he shd not belittle himself like that! Thats the problem with Bollywood stars, they go crazy for Hollywood movies, even for a bit role! Even Anil Kapoor had a tiny role in MI Ghost Protocol!
Anyway, Im looking forward to Great Gatsby more because its a classic work of American literature and its set on Long Island, my home for last 2 decades!

".by the time you look down on your popcorn to pick another morsel, I'd be gone from the film... he he... kinda short service,"

hahah! i can't help but compare the whole pomp and show over Anil's 3 minutes of fame in Mission impossible!
