A source close to Abraham told Mid Day: "When media persons asked Sylvester for his comment in Beverly Hills recently, the star apparently said he was flattered that Bollywood was planning to get inspired from his yesteryear flick.

"Apparently while complimenting John on his work, Sly said he thought John had an even better build than the star himself. His exact words were, 'Actually, he's built better than I ever was'."

Reacting to Stallone's compliments, Abraham said: "I'm overwhelmed and it's a privilege to be encouraged by none other than Stallone, who has always been my hero. His Rocky 4 is the reason why I got into films."

It was recently reported that director Sanjay Gupta was keen to base his next project on Rambo with the Shootout at Wadala star in the lead role.

Abraham has said that he believes India needs a real action hero.
