Amitabh Bachchan has got an offer to act in a film by Oscar
nominated English director Ridley Scott.
Ridley Scott is making his next movie Body Of Lies, a
thriller about an undercover CIA agent who is on a mission to track
a high-ranking terrorist. Leonardo DiCaprio plays the CIA
operative, while Russell Crowe plays a manipulative CIA boss. Scott
has reportedly sent an email to Amitabh Bachchan for an important
role in the film.
The superstar has expressed interest and asked for the film's
script, which is currently being worked upon.
But the only spoiler is that Ridley Scott wants to shoot the
film in September, a month for which Bachchan has already given his
dates to other producers. This may leave Big B with little option
but to decline Scott's offer.
Even if this happens, Hollywood is still not far for Bachchan.
He will act with Johnny Depp in Mira Nair's Shantaram. And
there will also be Deepa Mehta's Exclusion which will have actors
from both India and Hollywood.
