Proud Bachchan Considers Hollywood Offer

Bollywood superstar AMITABH BACHCHAN has turned down the chance to star in a RIDLEY SCOTT movie, because he was offered the role by email. The 64-year-old actor - the biggest name in the Indian movie industry - has hinted he could be persuaded to star alongside Russell Crowe and Leonardo DiCaprio in Body Of Lies, but only if he is granted a meeting with a member of the production team. Bachchan says, "The email for this offer came from (Indian director) Mira Nair's office. Someone from Ridley Scott's unit has to come to me and tell me the story. Just an offer on the e-mail from a third party isn't enough. "Besides, they want to shoot in September (07). It seems impossible for me to leave behind my commitments here to do this film. "I've asked for the script. Right now I don't have any idea about my role or the theme. Where's the question of saying yes without getting the details?"
