Sylvester Stallone made a teeny-weeny faux pas of sorts on Instagram yesterday. The Rocky star mistook Salman Khan, who wished him for his upcoming directorial venture Creed 2, for Bobby Deol. Yes, you read that right. Stallone wanted to return Salman's favour, but his good wishes went in another direction altogether.
Salman had shared a video of the Rocky actor talking about his next directorial project Creed 2.
"While I introduce the Race 3 family this week, this is something all of you should know," Salman said on Twitter while sharing a message on Creed 2 from the 71-year-old action star.
Being overwhelmed by Salman's sweet gesture, Stallone also wanted to do something special. He wrote a good luck wish for the Race 3 team on his official Instagram page but instead of sharing the pic of Salman's character from the movie, he shared Bobby's. Oops!
"The very best wishes to very talented film hero Salman Khan For his next film 'Race 3'!@beingsalmankhan" Stallone wrote.
Insta users immediately took note of the goof-up, calling out Stallone and asking him to rectify the mistake. He soon took off the post from his Insta account.
This isn't the first time Bollywood actors have been mistaken for their peers in the Hindi film industry. Earlier, foreign media called Deepika Padukone Priyanka Chopra. The issue soon sparked a debate. We wonder whether Bhaijaan will take Stallone's boo-boo in good humour, or get back at him in his Dabangg way.
Race 3, directed by choreographer-filmmaker Remo D'Souza, also stars Anil Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez and Daisy Shah.
