After being flooded with overwhelming love, support and fan frenzy during his stunning New York premiere appearance, Bollywood superstar and our very own global icon Amitabh Bachchan has bowled over the difficult to please critics of Hollywood for his performance in Baz Lurhman's highly anticipated 'The Great Gatsby'!
After an elegant and classy night during the NYC 'The Great Gatsby' premiere catching up with the entire cast and crew including Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire, Big B, we hear has garnered praise from the 'Variety Magazine', the most important trade paper of Hollywood !!
Scott Fundas, one of Hollywood's most revered film critics has written in his 'Variety Magazine' review heaping positive words for our superstar, by saying "By far the liveliest work in the film comes from two actors with only a few minutes of screen time between them: the lithe, long-limbed newcomer Elizabeth Debicki as gabby golf pro Jordan Baker, and, in a single scene that marks his belated Hollywood debut, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan as the flamboyant Jewish "gambler," Meyer Wolfsheim."
Most other critics such as The Hollywood Reporter's Todd McCarthy were also positive, describing it as the film that "feels vibrantly alive while remaining quite faithful to the spirit, if not the letter or the tone, of its source".
Well as India celebrates 100 years of cinema this month, one of the country's biggest movie icon winning hearts worldwide yet again is just pleasing to hear!
Big B's wife Jaya Bachchan had also accompanied him during the starry premier of 'The Great Gatsby', in New York.
