Praising Big B, Hollywood star Leonardo said: "He couldn't be a more gentle, wonderful individual to work with. And astoundingly talented. To come and play Meyer Wolfsheim in this movie and embody that roughness and a mystery, everything that comes out of his mouth is filled with so much more and so much presence. And then you see the camera cut and he's the perfect gentleman, just a joy to be around and a wonderful collaborator. He's a magnificent actor and I was honoured to work with him."

Amitabh Bachchan's other co-star Tobey Maguire who played an observer and narrator Nick Carraway in the film speaks about his experience working with the megastar, It took him a while to "get over the feeling" that he was "in the presence of iconic royalty," Tobey told.

"It was really an honour working with him. He so great. He so thoughtful. And his presence, he's really kind of regal in a sense but also really down-to-earth and so modest. And a very talented actor too. It was kind of an interesting, surprising way to go for that part and I couldn't imagine anybody else doing it," Tobey said.

Meanwhile, Big B is having a great time at Cannes. He said he is proud to be at the Cannes film festival, today he will be joined by his daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and granddaughter Aaradhya.

Big B addressed the Cannes film fest in Hindi. He is highly impressed with the warm welcome that he received. He is also excited that Cannes is celebrating100 years of Indian cinema.
