New Delhi: F. Scott Fitzgerald's book has seen many cinematic renditions and after making its way to the silver screen for almost three times, Baz Luhrmann is yet again ready to weave the romantic story on screen.

The film revolves around a war veteran Nick Carraway who comes to live in New York and finds himself drawn to the past and lifestyle of his millionaire neighbour Jay Gatsby.

While the film boasts of a star cast like Leonardo DiCaprio, Isla Fisher, Toby Maguire, Carrey Mulligan but back in India its Amitabh Bachchan that we are rooting for. Making his Hollywood debut, Amitabh Bachchan will be seen playing the role of Meyer Wolfsheim. Will Bollywood's superstar be able to cast his spell in 'The Great Gatsby'?
