One doesn’t know where such outlandish stories originate from. But the latest doing the rounds is that Sylvester Stallone will be playing Salman Khan’s guru and mentor in director Ali Abbas Zafar’s Sultan.
Sources close to the project laugh off the suggestion as outrageous.
“The report that Stallone is in Sultan is completely false. Whoever thought of that one deserves the Pulitzer for fiction. Why would we sign Stallone for Sultan? Firstly Stallone played a boxer in Rambo, not a wrestler, if that is the connection people are making. Secondly Salman Khan plays a wrestler from Haryana. Why would a wrestler from Haryana have a Caucasian mentor?” says a source.
Stallone, it should be remembered, made a disastrous Bollywood debut in Sabir Khan’s Kambakht Ishq. He continues to be in touch with the film’s producer Sajid Nadiadwala.
But another Bollywood film for Stallone?
“Not in a hurry,” says a source close to Nadiadwala.
