Amitabh Bachchan Nervous About Hollywood Shoot


Even an old-timer can suddenly feel like a beginner when he is placed in unfamiliar territory. Just ask Bollywood megastar and movie legend Amitabh Bachchan who might be feeling like a fish out of Bollywood waters.

The Big B chronicles on his blog the nerves and anxiety he is feeling ever since he boarded the plane that will take him to Sydney for the shooting of his first-ever Hollywood project — Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby’.

The 69-year-old Bollywood stalwart joins the cast of the $120 million film, along with Hollywood stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire, and could not help but feel apprehensive despite his vast experience and superstar stature in the Indian movie industry.

Bachchan blogs, “The shoot for The Great Gatsby for Baz Luhrmann! Butterflies as large and as huge as the Transformers monsters in the film that I breezed through on the flight. Apprehensions, as fearful as the raging thunder and lightening storm that broke over the Mumbai skyline just prior to my departure last night…”

The actor also wrote in his blog that he feels like a beginner once again in front of the Hollywood stars.

“A few days of preparation before the actual shoot and then on to the floor among stars — Leonardo di Caprio, Tobey Maguire and several others. A stranger among the giants of the International movie world, I feel as though I am starting off all over again,” he said.
