Mumbai, March 31 (IANS) Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is gearing himself for a busy schedule in the coming months involving a lot of travelling.

"I travel back to Bhopal in a few (days) to complete 'Satyagraha', to finish by the end of April and then immediately set off for New York to be with 'The Great Gatsby' (TGG) and its premiere on May 1. There is then the Melbourne film festival, where they do a retrospective of mine and give me honour. Those timings are from May 3 to May 15. I could come, they said, on any day," he wrote on his blog.

"The Cannes film festival opening is on the 15th of May with TGG, and I have to be there too," added the 70-year-old.
