NEW DELHI: Amitabh Bachan, Bollywood's biggest star, says he is willing to explore more Hollywood movies after his first small role in ''The Great Gatsby,'' a 3-D extravaganza starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

Bachan says he has never been offered Hollywood films before. The 71-year-old said that at his age, it is difficult to expect that certain roles will come his way. ''But yes, if there are people who want to cast me, I don't mind if something is offered,'' the Hindustan Times newspaper quoted him as saying in an interview published Tuesday.

The Indian screen legend has acted in more than 180 Indian films in a career spanning four decades.
