Rocky’ to star in a Hindi film worth Rs. 90 crores

He immortalized the man with a will that could never be broken. He boxed his way into our hearts over a span of three decades as Rocky Balboa and now he is set to play a part in a Bollywood film. Many believe that he is an over the hill knight but they wouldn’t have watched this year’s Rambo or the final installment of Rocky that released in 2006. Getting Sylvester Stallone to act in a Hindi film is definitely one of the biggest casting coups that Bollywood has pulled off from Hollywood and we are not forgetting that Johnny Depp will be playing a role in Shantharam.

Sylvester Stallone has agreed to play himself in the movie titled Kambhakth Ishq. The movie will have Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor in the lead and will be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. Kambhakth Ishq is set to become the first Indian movie to be shot inside Universal Studios, as the entire story is set in Hollywood, with Akshay playing a professional stuntman.

The biggest thing about the movie is its budget that is set at Rs. 90 crores, a figure that exceeds Sivaji and Dasavatharam and unbelievably the producer has trusted a debutant director Sabir Khan to helm the project.
