Las Vegas, Nov 19 (ANI): Indians are not the only people crazy about their glittery song and dance movies. Hollywood action heroes too are spellbound by the charm of Indian film industry.
While talking to ANI, Hollywood action icons such as Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and Tom Arnold praised Bollywood on the sidelines of there launch of the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, on Saturday.
Two-time Academy Award nominated actor Sylvester Stallone, who has rocked the screen with the films like Rocky, First Blood and Cop Land, said he is not talented enough to act in Bollywood films, which are full of singing and dancing.
“I admire the work. I admire the way it has supported the industry. It’s incredible. I have never been in India. It would be a great adventure and I look forward to it,” added Stallone.
Another Hollywood actor Bruce Willis, who has acted in the action packed Die Hard series, said Bollywood actors have much more hold on their fans in comparison to Hollywood actors.
” Bollywood is doing great. They call it Bollywood for a reason; it is a good luck charm,” Willis added.
American actor Tom Arnold said, They make movies more than us maybe. I love to work there. Its a beautiful country. I saw the Darjeeling Express and its beautiful.
Other Hollywood actors like Pamela Anderson, who were present at the launch of the Planet Hollywood, also praised Bollywood.
Inspired by the world of Hollywood, the restaurant chain was founded by British entrepreneur Robert Earl and launched in New York City in October 1991 with financial backing from Hollywood actors Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Demi Moore.
The chain will soon be coming to India with plans of setting up five restaurants in the country.
