John Abraham has occasionally been referred to as Bollywood’s own Sylvester Stallone. Abraham recently admitted that Stallone is his idol and his upcoming film, ‘Rocky Handsome’, is in a way his tribute to Stallone for his work in the award-winning��’Rocky’ series.
Magna Mags quote Abraham as saying, “Sylvester Stallone is the reason I got into films. ��I still remember being awestruck when I watched ‘Rocky IV’ on the big screen for the first time. ��I wanted to be like him, the underdog with a tough exterior and a soft heart… For me, just him watching ‘Rocky Handsome’ would be validation enough that I exist in this industry because of him.”
Directed by Nishikant Kamat, ‘Rocky Handsome’ releases on 25th March.
