Sylvester Stallone known for his epic action films like Rocky and Rambo has come out and praised the physique of John Abraham.
The actor also believes that he would be the best person to portray the role of Rambo in a Bollywood remake.
A source close to Abraham told Mid Day: “When media persons asked Sylvester for his comment in Beverly Hills recently, the star apparently said he was flattered that Bollywood was planning to get inspired from his yesteryear flick.
“Apparently while complimenting John on his work, Sly said he thought John had an even better build than the star himself. His exact words were, ‘Actually, he’s built better than I ever was’.”
Reacting to Stallone’s compliments, Abraham said: “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.”
It was reported that Sanjay Gupta has been looking to cast John Abraham in the lead role in a movie based on Rambo.
