It’s no secret that Bollywood has been fascinated by Sly’s Rambo and Rocky films. There have been rumours now and then about plans to remake Rambo in Hindi with John Abraham playing the lead role of the fearless, deadly and rebellious John Rambo.
So when Sylvester Stallone, the original Rambo, was recently posed the question as to who he thinks is the best choice to play Rambo in the remake, the Hollywood star said it’s got to be John Abraham, according to sources from John’s camp.
Stallone is apparently too impressed by John’s physique and is quoted to have said: “Actually, he’s built better than I ever was.”
Now, this is surely a compliment to relish for any lover of fitness and bodybuilding. No wonder, John Abraham’s overwhelmed.
“I'm overwhelmed and it’s a privilege to be encouraged by none other than Stallone, who has always been my hero. His Rocky 4 is the reason why I got into films,” John is quoted as saying.
John was seen flaunting his hot bod in his last release Shootout At Wadala which has already emerged a hit at the box office.
