Sylvester Stallone in ‘Kambakth Ishq’
‘Kambakth Ishq’ starring Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor has lots of first time surprises in store. It is through this film that for the first time Hollywood superstar Sylvester Stallone will act in a Hindi movie. Also, with this film, for the first time in Indian history, the shooting will take place inside the Universal Studio. This will also be the biggest and costliest movie so far with an investment of about Rs. 90 crores. Akshay plays a Hollywood stuntman in the film and the film is from Sajid Nadiawala.
Sajid Nadiadwala is all too excited about the way the movie is shaping up and says, “We have signed Sylvester Stallone to be a part of ‘Kambakth Ishq’. We have a certain vision for our production house Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment. Since ‘Kambakth Ishq’ is based in Hollywood… it made perfect sense to appoint casting agents in Hollywood and cast mainstream Hollywood stars. This film is one of our most ambitious ventures to date and we didn’t want to leave any stone unturned.”
“I have been working on the script for a long time now, and it’s an exciting merging of Hollywood and Indian cinema. So, for me, it’s like a dream come true and I have the best producer anyone can ask for. He is making even the impossible possible for me,” says Sabir Khan, who will be making his directorial debut with this film.
