You saw him in the action-packed films the likes of Rocky and Rambo. Now the legendary actor, Sylvester Stallone, is back again…but this time in a Bollywood film! Yes, we are talking about none other than the Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor starrer Kambhakt Ishq. The buzz about Kambakht Ishq has been growing since the day the film was announce and now that Stallone is doing a guest appearance — playing himself — and the rumors of other big guest appearances it has gotten even higher.
Shooting for the film in LA is being done at the Kodak Theatre. Upon meeting Akshay and talking with him Stallone expressed great interest in Akshay’s fitness routine and complimented Akki on his physique. Khiladi Kumar of course was all smiles.
Sajid Nadiadwala reported that the film is set in Hollywood and Akshay Kumar plays a body double, so they needed a perfect Hollywood hero and their choice was full on Sylvester Stallone. Also in the scene featuring Stallone is Hollywood actress Holly Vance. The high action sequence with Kareena was staged by the talented action director Spiro Razatos, whose done the films: Vantage Point, Bad Boys 2 and Grams 21.
When asked if there would be more Hollywood projects in the pipeline, Sajid said, “I guess one door opens the doors to many others. This has been an enriching experience for all of us. I am sure that this is just the beginning of our company’s association with Stallone.”
We at BS of course cannot wait to see how this promising film Kambhakt Ishq turns out. Hoping Akki kicks butt with this one as well!
