2009 was a good year for Akshay Kumar when nearly every movie of his was a superhit. Kambakkht Ishq was one of them. But more then Akshay and Kareena Kapoor's hate to love transition, it was the presence of a range of big Hollywood greats in the film that got people talking. Brandon Routh, Denise Richards, and Sylvester Stallone decided to be part of this crazy ride which is supposedly funny. The movie did a decent business at the box office and a lot of that is because the audience wanted to see these amazing Hollywood people in a Bollywood movie. How often does that happen? Like, Never!
