Ambuj Dixit recalls his fan-boy moment with Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone
Actor Ambuj Dixit started his journey in the industry as an actor in Student Of The Year and as an AD in Kalank. He had the opportunity of meeting superstars like Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit, Alia Bhatt, and Varun Dhawan during those days and remembers it fondly. Ambuj has also worked as an AD in a short film for Santosh Sivan, and done commercials for big brands.
The young actor also met American actor and filmmaker Sylvester Stallone and it was a lifetime experience for him. Talking about that magical moment Ambuj says,”My friend and I were hanging out that particular day at Beverly Hills. Around evening we were passing by a place that looked quite cool and we thought of going inside. While we were sitting and having a good time we suddenly saw Sylvester Stallone and Mickey Rourke entering. It was like a surreal moment for us to see them.
When we tried approaching them it was quite a nervous time, but we did go up to them. I just said hello to him and he replied with a hello. Then I told him I’m an actor from India and all my life I have idolized him and that I never would have thought of meeting him here in a place like this. He wished me in his typical style and asked me to keep punching and work hard because dreams do come true. It was a moment that was not expected to happen but happened. His aura and energy were too good and I was completely awestruck.” He also shares his favorite films of Sylvester Stallone – Rocky, Rambo, Cliffhanger and Escape To Victory, Cop Land.
