This film also includes appearances from other influential Hollywood stars.

Kambakkht Ishq revolves around a struggle between a Hollywood stuntman, Viraj Shergill (played by Akshay Kumar), and a hospital surgeon and ex-model, Simrita Rai (played by Kareena Kapoor). In this film, when Viraj’s brother Lucky falls in love with and marries Simrita’s best friend, Kamini, Viraj and Simrita do everything they can to prove that marriage between the two was a bad idea.

Stallone himself was elected to the International Boxing Hall of Fame on December 7, 2010, in the non-participant category.

While working with and getting to know Kumar, Stallone was reportedly very impressed with the former’s physical abilities, fitness routine and muscular physique.
