Sylvester Stallone, known for giving Hollywood multiple hits, made his entry into Bollywood with a cameo in the 2009 film Kambakkht Ishq, which also starred Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor. Though the actor did not appear in any other Hindi film, his connection with Bollywood remained, and he even decided to promote the 2018 film Race 3.

However, Sylvester Stallone was unable to recognise Salman Khan as he tried to promote him and his film. While talking about Salman, Sylvester ended up sharing the character poster of Bobby Deol, who was also part of the film. The action crime film starred Salman as the lead and Bobby in a supporting role.

It started when Salman shared the announcement for Sylvester's film Creed 2 on his social media account. Sylvester tried to return the favour and promote Salman and his upcoming film Race 3. He mistakenly shared Bobby's poster in place of Salman, and captioned it, "The very best wishes to very talented film hero SALMAN KHAN for his next film RACE 3! @beingsalmankhan." The veteran actor tried to rectify the error, and shared Salman's picture after deleting Bobby's, but was still skeptical if he had chosen the correct one.

Posting a zoomed-in picture of Salman from the latest poster of Race 3, Sylvester wrote, “OK, EVERYBODY let’s try this AGAIN , good luck to the very talented SALMAN KHAN on his upcoming new film RACE 3 ! ( if this is wrong I give up ! ) LOL.”

Salman has never shied away from expressing his admiration for Sylvester. Back in 2015, he had called the actor 'Aapke hero ka hero (hero of your hero).' He also wished Sylvester on his 75th birthday in July last year, wishing him 'good health, love, and happiness.' Sylvester is celebrating his 76th birthday on Wednesday, June 6.
