Several Bollywood stars over the years have made their debut in international waters and one of the oldest actors has been Amitabh Bachchan. In 2013, Big B starred alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and impressed us with his memorable performance in the film. Today DiCaprio turns 47 and we decided to step back in time when the two of the biggest stars walked the red carpet and couldn’t stop gushing over each other.
Amitabh Bachchan and Leonardo DiCaprio worked together in The Great Gatsby and the film even screened at the Cannes International Film Festival at the time. While the actors made a stylish appearance on the red carpet, they also spoke affectionately about each other and couldn’t help but congratulate each other.
At the time, Leonardo, while talking about his work with Big B, called him an “ incredibly talented ” actor. “He couldn’t be a sweeter and wonderful person to work with. And incredibly talented. To come and play Meyer Wolfsheim in this movie and embody that roughness and that mystery, everything that comes out of his mouth is filled with so much more. And so much presence. And then you see the camera cut off and he’s the perfect gentleman, just a joy to be around and a wonderful collaborator. He’s a wonderful actor and I was honored to work with him, ”a Leonardo told NDTV.
Meanwhile, Big B who loves to write and often writes his thoughts on his blog, had written, “The Great Gatsby ‘premiered in Cannes .. and with star Leonardo di Caprio on the red carpet and then on stage .. me giving speech introduction in hindi .. 100 years of Indian cinema .. he is a most humble and down to earth co star .. caring and considerate throughout the making of the film .. ”
Well, we love when Hollywood meets Bollywood.
