Big B feels nervous before shooting for The Great Gatsby

The legendary Amitabh Bachchan has gone on record to say that he is nervous and apprehensive before the shoot of his $120 million Hollywood project Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby that stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire. Big B, who is presently in Sydney, said that the (proverbial) “butterflies are as large and as huge as the Transformers monsters in the film” that he breezed through on the flight.


He also tweeted, “Starting work tomorrow morning .. new environs, new systems, new colleagues, new set up ..new nerves and fresh butterflies! So Sydney it is, in Australia…and its pleasantly cold, even though Summer is round the corner … shooting for Great Gatsby”. He added, “It has been a delight to be associated with a production that must in my opinion and limited experience, be described as incredible. The sheer level of management to detail and correctness in every sphere is by itself an exercise in the ultimate. And why not. When history shall refer back to the effort made in restoring the contents of a literary work on film, they must indeed have the perfection of detail, if not anything else, in homage to the author. It would require an entire chapter and many more to describe all that one experiences on such occasions, but it would be an infringement of contractual obligations if I were to indulge in them and hence what I am able to say without hesitation is that when I do get an approval of sharing my thoughts you and all the Ef shall perhaps be the first to listen in.”


News is that the said film is a romantic drama that follows the life of midwesterner Nick Carraway who moves to Long Island, New York and becomes drawn into the glamorous life of his neighbour Jay Gatsby. But, Nick soon discovers that the lives of the nouveau riche are not all what they seem from the outside.
