Hollywood's action hero Sylvester Stallone and stunt king Akshay Kumar are teaming in a Bollywood romantic comedy flick, the first for the American star.
Stallone has played lead role in four ultra-violent Rambo films. He will again play John Rambo, this time in an Indian production.Stallion's project, 'Kambakht Ishq' (Incredible Love) is a romantic comedy that the producers claim is the first Bollywood movie to feature A-list Hollywood actors in proper roles.In his new incarnation Rambo is a successful Hollywood actor, not a misunderstood killing machine. The plot centres on his stuntman double who falls in love with a supermodel.
The leads are played by Akshay Kumar and Karina Kapoor, two of India's biggest stars. The film also features the former Bond girl Denise Richards and Brendon Routh, who played the latest incarnation of Superman.
According to ‘The Times’, Indian film-makers, hoping to tap new markets, are collaborating with some of the West's most feted talents. The Hollywood screenwriter Paul Schrader, whose credits include Taxi Driver and Raging Bull, is working with Anubhav Sinha, an Indian producer, for his next project Xtreme City.
