Some time ago, there was buzz about a Bollywood director wanting to base his next project on Sly's action film Rambo with John in the lead.
A source from John's camp says, "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 built than the star himself. His exact words were, 'Actually, he's built better than I ever was'."
No surprises that John is thrilled at Sly's compliments. The actor says, "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."
