Big B does it for free

Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan has charged nothing for his Hollywood debut in The Great Gatsby. Big B has done a cameo in the Baz Lurhmann movie, playing the role of a Jew, Meyer Wolfsheim.

"My role is hardly that of a minute. A year-and-half ago, Baz Lurhmann called me and said he has a small role for me, which he felt was not worthy of me. He nevertheless asked if I would do it and I readily agreed. I did it as a gesture. It is not remunerative. I have not charged anything," the legend revealed.

Big B, who is quite humbled by the rave reviews that he has received in Hollywood from critics who caught the film's New York premiere, is all set for another glitterati outing at 66th Cannes Film Festival opening.
