Superstar Amitabh Bachchan has always said he never yearned to act in Hollywood. Though he hasn't said no, the actor is not sure whether he'll be able to take up director Ridley Scott's film that stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe.
"The email for this offer came from Mira Nair's office. Someone from Ridley Scott's unit has to come to me and tell me the story. Just an offer on the e-mail from a third party isn't enough," Amitabh told IANS.
"Besides they want to shoot in September. It seems impossible for me to leave behind my commitments here to do this film," added the Big B who is currently busy shooting a sequel to Ram Gopal Varma's Sarkar.
Amitabh has, however, asked for a copy of the script. He says he wants to get an idea about the role first and then only take a final decision.
"I've asked for the script. Right now I don't have any idea about my role or the theme. Where's the question of saying yes without getting the details?"
Scott's film, which is titled Body Of Lies, is a thriller based on a novel by David Ignatius.
