New Delhi: After making his Hollywood debut with Baz Luhrmann`s `The Great Gatsby`, megastar Amitabh Bachchan has reportedly been approached for another international project which is likely to be an adaptation of author Vikas Swaroop`s `Six Suspects`.

The 71-year-old has been approached by BBC and Starfield Productions to star in the project, which will be directed by award winning Argentinean filmmaker Pablo Trapero, read a statement issued Saturday.

Swaroop`s past novel `Q & A` was adapted by Danny Boyle as `Slumdog Millionnaire`, which went on to win several awards, including eight Academy Awards.

`The Great Gatsby` saw Amitabh, in the role of Meyer Wolfsheim, share screen space with Hollywood stars Tobey Maguire and Leonardo Di Caprio.
