One is an older, richer and innovative cousin and the other is the younger one who looks at him for inspiration from time to time.

The collaboration between Hollywood and Bollywood
Hollywood actors have been having cameos in Bollywood features far more frequently and significantly than ever before. The fans from both sides of the world absolutely love this.
Meanwhile, Hollywood has been casting more and more Bollywood celebrities but unlike the past where their role was just limited to an over-hyped cameo. They are getting proper screen time, with Priyanka Chopra actually playing the main character in a major Hollywood Television series!
But the relationship between Bollywood and Hollywood is no longer just professional. It has become a great way for people from both industries to make amazing personal friendships that would have been unheard off in the past!

Yes, it’s easy to imagine that these two might have become friends because of sharing a gym. Or maybe while fighting a grizzly bear together.
But, in reality, we have twitter to thank for this amazing bromance between these macho stars. It began when Salman Khan showered Stallone with tweets filled love and admiration for this work, to which Stallone replied by thanking him and expressed his desire to share the screen with him sometime.
