They’re playing ‘Anjaana’ and ‘Anjaani’ in the US and are just about cordial to each other. But Priyanka Chopra and Ranbir Kapoor are bonded by their love for the Rocky-Rambo superstar Sylvester Stallone.
In fact one of the temptations for the pair to do Sajid Nadiadwala’s ‘Anjaana Anjaani’ was that the producer was a friend of Stallone, after his last film ‘Kambakkht Ishq’ where Stallone played a role.
“Ranbir and Priyanka definitely want to meet him. I’m flying down to the Las Vegas to join them on 27 January. We’ll be meeting Stallone on the 4th or 5th of February,” informs Sajid who earlier made Kareena Kapoor’s soul-mate Saif Ali Khan’s day when Saif drove down from Chicago to meet Stallone in Los Angeles for Sajid’s ‘Kambakkht Ishq’.
Ranbir is a much bigger Stallone fan than Saif could ever be.
Sajid and his young son Subhaan were supposed to meet Stallone during the New Year. But Stallone injured his neck and the appointment was cancelled. Now a new date is being worked out.
Apparently Ranbir and Priyanka refused to let Sajid and his son meet Stallone alone.
They insisted on accompanying their producer for the meeting.
Says Sajid, “I think Ranbir and Priyanka will kill me if I go without them to see Sly. We’ll all be driving down from Las Vegas where Ranbir and Priyanka are shooting, to Los Angeles to meet Stallone. It’s a 2-3 hour drive.”
Ranbir, a big Stallone fans owns a series of Rocky t-shirts. He intends to get a couple of them signed by the star.
