Mumbai, July 23 (IANS) Producer Sajid Nadiadwala, who was in Los Angeles supervising the shooting of Akshay Kumar-Kareena Kapoor starrer “Kambhakt Ishq”, left the unit all to themselves to be with his pregnant wife. “This exit was totally unscheduled and unwarranted. But I can’t help it,” Nadidadwala told IANS.

“My wife is expecting a baby. And much as I tried to be professional and matter-of-fact about this event in my life, the family man in me finally took over from the producer. I’m sorry but I’ve to be with my wife at this important time in her life,” said Nadiadwala, who will stay away until his wife’s delivery due July 24.

“Until then the unit will have to take care of themselves in Los Angeles.”

A brave decision considering Sylvester Stallone joined the shooting from July 18.

“Stallone doesn’t have a walk-on part, as some people seemed to believe. He has a substantial three-day role. And he plays himself,” revealed Nadiadwala.

So Stallone as Stallone in “Kambhakt Ishq” - not bad!

“Not bad at all. This is the most expensive film I’ve ever made. And every cent is worth it.”

Though Nadidadwala doesn’t want to reveal any of the storyline, Akshay plays a stuntman in Hollywood and Stallone is one of the Hollywood icons he plays body-double to in the film.

Before shooting together the two bonded off the sets. Apparently, Stallone got interested in Akshay’s work and even showed interest in watching the actor’s work.
