Bachchan eyes more Hollywood roles

Amitabh Bachchan has a small role in The Great Gatsby

Amitabh Bachchan, Bollywood's biggest star, has said he is willing to explore more Hollywood movies after his first small role in The Great Gatsby.

Bachchan said he has never been offered Hollywood films before his current outing in Baz Luhrmann's epic starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire.

The 71-year-old said that at his age, it is difficult to expect that certain roles will come his way.

"But yes, if there are people who want to cast me, I don't mind if something is offered," the Hindustan Times newspaper quoted him as saying.

The screen legend has acted in more than 180 Indian films in a career spanning four decades.
