The disgraced actor was sentenced to five years behind bars earlier this month (May15) for an array of charges stemming from an incident when he killed a homeless man and injured four others after drunkenly mounting a kerb in his car in Mumbai, India in 2002.

He was released on temporary bail just hours after his conviction due to problems with official paperwork and is still walking free after lodging an appeal, which is due to be heard in July (15).

While he awaits his fate, Khan has been using, and he wrote a post hailing the Rocky actor as one of his heroes, prompting an unlikely job offer from Stallone.

Khan wrote on the microblogging site, "I've always followed him in life but my fault not on socialmedia (sic)...If anyone has to follow a Hollywood star, then follow Sylvester Stallone. He is the hero of your hero (sic)."

A flattered Stallone replied, "Would like to thank the super talented Indian superstar Salman Khan (for) the Compliment he Tweeted! We should do an ACTION FILM together!"
