B-Town stars who met Baz had this to say about him:
Actress Pooja Bedi: I think I finally met someone who chats more than me. He is warm, friendly, interesting to talk to.
Actress Celina Jaitly: Baz loves India and Indian beauty. He looked at me and said, “If you aren’t an actress, you definitely should be one. You have the prettiest eyes I have seen.”
Actress Gul Panag: I found him humble and chatty. We talked about our shared passion for retro classic motorbikes.
Actor Amitabh Bachchan (on his blog): By the middle of the afternoon Baz Luhrmann climbs up to the office third floor for a meeting. Some exquisite paintings presented, some talk on motor bike accidents and swollen hands of infection, endless musings on cinema and philosophy and intent...and then good bye. With the hope to meet again.
Actor Dino Morea: Very aware of matters of the world. Talked about cinema and other creative arts.
