Director Baz Luhrmann remarked, "Tom Hanks is unquestionably the Amitabh Bachchan of America, and I mean it."

In New Delhi: As described by Hollywood director Baz Luhrmann, Amitabh Bachchan is the Marlon Brando and Elvis Presley of India. The biography of the late great King of Rock and Roll, Elvis, which starred Austin Butler as the singer and Tom Hanks as Colonel Tom Parker, the manager, is the director of Moulin Rouge's most recent hit. However, when Baz Luhrmann spoke to NDTV, Big B was on his mind. In Mr. Luhrmann's lavish 2013 rendition of The Great Gatsby, which starred Leonardo, Amitabh Bachchan had a brief but significant role, and he undoubtedly left an impression. According to me, Amitabh Bachchan is not only the Marlon Brando of India but also the Elvis of India, according to Baz Luhrmann.


Additionally, Baz Luhrmann compared Amitabh Bachchan and the illustrious Tom Hanks, going so far as to refer to Tom Hanks as the "Amitabh Bachchan of America" in addition to calling them "similar."


"Tom Hanks is without a doubt America's Amitabh Bachchan, and I mean that. I frequently bring up Amitabh Bachchan since I miss him so much and am aware of the hardships his family is experiencing. Baz Luhrmann remarked, "I think about him and I think about Tom, they are so incredibly similar. I haven't heard from him in a while. Similar to how Amitabh would contribute his enthusiasm, inspiration, and wisdom to the set in addition to his performance. On The Great Gatsby movie sets, I witnessed that.

Let's go back to 2013 when Amitabh Bachchan was chosen to play Meyer Wolfsheim, the mentor of Jay Gatsby. His role was only one scene, but he was so imposing that he overshadowed everyone else at the New York premiere. Hollywood got a taste of Bollywood fanaticism as Amitabh Bachchan's fans filled the theatre for the premiere and gave him the loudest applause. US media believed Leonardo DiCaprio had arrived, as Big B later tweeted.


Let's go back to Baz Luhrmann's NDTV interview. When asked why he decided to include the perspective of Elvis' manager in the movie, Mr. Luhrmann responded, "Amitabh Bachchan would realize that there is a conflict between the business and the show, the art and the commerce, behind every great celebrity. Whether it's the Indian or American entertainment industries, this relationship has the potential to be very positive. However, when it becomes unbalanced or is solely about making money like it is in this voyage, it may become toxic. You can see this couple's incredible ascent to fame in this story, but their connection ultimately leads to a horrible demise for both of them."


Elvis, directed by Baz Luhrmann, had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival and opens in Indian theatres on June 24.
