After making his Hollywood debut with Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby, Amitabh Bachchan has reportedly been approached for another international project which is likely to be an adaptation of author Vikas Swaroop's Six Suspects.
The 71-year-old has been approached by BBC and Starfield Productions to star in the project, which will be directed by award winning Argentinean filmmaker Pablo Trapero, read a statement issued on Saturday.
Swaroop's past novel Q & A was adapted by Danny Boyle as Slumdog Millionnaire, which went on to win several awards, including eight Academy Awards.
The Great Gatsby saw Amitabh, in the role of Meyer Wolfsheim, share screen space with Hollywood stars Tobey Maguire and Leonardo Di Caprio.
