Megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s debut international project, The Great Gatsby, is in its post-production stage and the actor says it will be out by May this year.

Bachchan, 70, who is currently shooting for Prakash Jha’s Satyagraha in Bhopal, received a call from filmmaker Baz Luhrmann, who gave him an update on the film’s release. “Baz Luhrmann calls to update on Great Gatsby... Final settings being done... Should be out May... Hope to see a print in April,” Bachchan posted on Twitter.

Bachchan plays Meyer Wolfsheim, a man with a dark past, who helps the film’s lead Leonardo DiCaprio’s character make money when he first comes to New York after the First World War. The much-anticipated film is an adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel and also stars Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire.
