Hollywood legend Sylvester Stallone may be doing a cameo in Race 3.

There has not been any official confirmation regarding this, but actor Salman Khan recently tweeted a video of Stallone talking about Creed, and captioned it: “While I introduce the #race3 family this week, this is something all of you should know.”

Stallone has previously appeared in Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer Kambakkht Ishq.

Check out the video below:

Meanwhile, Stallone’s iconic character Rocky Balboa is all set to enter Bollywood. The Hindi version of Rambo will have Tiger Shroff in the titular role.

According to the film’s director Sid Anand, Bollywood Rambo remake was like “an endorsement from God.” The Hindi version of the movie will not have any of the singing and dancing often associated with Bollywood movies.

“I wouldn’t do that to Rambo,” he told the BBC. “That’s like blasphemy.”

The film was launched in Cannes. “Rambo is a global icon. He resonates in every part of the world, so it’s important to start our campaign at the Mecca of film-making,” he said, on launching the film at Cannes. Anand wanted to remake the movie due to the “true blue action hero with a heart” immortalised by Stallone.

The Hindi version of Rambo will “resonate in India” – but warned: “It could be controversial like Rambo First Blood was in the 80s. It makes you think, and is about a situation that’s prevailing in India and is unique in that way.”

On what fans of the original movie will think of the Hindi remake, Anand said: “I’m aware there will be polarised reaction from the fans of Rambo who don’t want it messed with. I have to make it worthy of the legacy of what Rambo means.”
