Bachchan has been approached by BBC and Starfield productions to star in the movie, based on the 'Slumdog Millionnaire' author's yet another bestselling novel.

It will be directed by award winning Argentinean filmmaker Pablo Trapero.

However, it is not clear what role Big B would play and if he would be giving his nod for the film or not.

Bachchan essayed a short role as Meyer Wolfsheim in 'Great Gatsby' in a small scene with Gatsby and his friend, played by Hollywood star Leonardo Di Caprio.
