Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio, whose latest film The Wolf of Wall Street releases in India on Christmas (December 25), may visit the country's entertainment capital in the January 2014.

"His visit is likely to be a part of a different strategy, by way of which the Titanic star will meet some of India's promising entrepreneurs," a source from the film's distribution team in India said. "Leonardo sincerely believes that the character on whose life the film is based is a huge role model for the youth of today in terms of enterprising skills," the source added.

The film follows the real life story of Jordan Belfort's rise to a wealthy stockbroker to his fall due to use of fraudulent methods.

"The actor has learnt that India is a country booming with young firms and start-ups and hence he felt that more than an obvious promotion of the movie, a platform to interact with such a crowd of young enthusiasts would be a far better connect and a great opportunity," the source added.

The Wolf of Wall Street, directed by Martin Scorsese, is being distributed in India by PVR Pictures and MVP Entertainment, and if one hears it right, backend preparations are already underway to make the visit special for the widely popular actor.

In fact, DiCaprio has, in the past attempted to visit the country - first for a tiger conservation project, and earlier this year, there were rumours that he would come down for the promotion of Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby", which also stars Bollywood's beloved Amitabh Bachchan.
