Unlike Anil Kapoor who did not feature in the first trailer of MI:4, Amitabh Bachchan's 'blink-and-miss' performance has been given prominence in the trailer of his debut Hollywood movie The Great Gatsby.
The actor looks dapper in a grey coloured suit teamed with a white hat. He looks classic as he sports a beard and moustache.
"I still do not have the liberty to talk of the film in a personal capacity. Contracts bind me, but this I can say that it was a sheer delight to work with someone of such great genius as Baz Luhrmann and a host of co-stars that have astronomical presence in the world of cinema - Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire and the other greats," Amitabh posted on his blog bigb.bigadda.com.
"And everyone works as a family and a large portion of this attitude should be credited to the master of the scenario, the director Baz Luhrmann," he added.
The Great Gatsby is Amitabh's debut Hollywood venture where the actor makes a friendly appearence. Though for a short while, the 69-year-old will share screen with Hollywood stars Leonardo and Tobey.
He feels the film will take viewers back in time.
"The attention to detail, the amount of research and finesse on recreating the 'times’ of NYC in the those early years, was simply brilliant," Amitabh said.
"I am certain that when you shall see the film, you will realise that you have indeed been transported to another decade of the early years with such authenticity that you begin to feel as though you were present there yourself," he said.
