Sylvester STALLONE is Shooting for Bollywood?!
Bollywood filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala (42) has reportedly signed with Hollywood legend Sylvester Stallone for his upcoming film Kambakht Ishq, with actors Akshay Kumar (40) and Kareena Kapoor (27). The two actors have already played together in the film “Tasham” released in April 2008.
The film would be directed by Sabir Khan in which Akshay Kumar would play a stuntman. Nadiadwala would like to bring some Hollywood stars to bring an authentic touch to the film. “This film is my most ambitious project. We had been having a conversation with Stallone’s agents for a while and he gave his consent,” said Nadiadwala.
Kareena KapoorSylvester Stallone would have two scenes in the film, which would be shot in Hollywood. According to Nadiadwala, scenes with the “Rocky” star will be shot at Universal Studios and Kodak.
According to various accounts, the film would feature a total of nine Hollywood actors (and actresses) and be shot in the exotic locations of Los Angeles. We’re talking about Beyonce Knowles (Destiny Child) …
Sabir Khan said: “This is an exciting fusion of Hollywood and Indian cinema. Sajid has gone out of his way to ensure that some of the biggest international names can show a keen interest in his film. ”
Refusing to disclose how much Stallone will be paid for the role, Nadiadwala says the film has an approximate budget of $ 20 million. Nadiadwala describes “Kambakht Ishq” as a romantic Bollywood comedy: “The film will have all the flavor of Bollywood. Only the projection will be bigger. ”
Nadiadwala and his team will fly to Los Angeles next week for the film’s pre-production.
The film appears to be currently announced for December 08, 2008.
In summary, it seems logical to think that Sly should only make one cameo appearance in this film (like in Taxi 3). He would certainly play his own role.
