It is said that the Hollywood superstar, Sylvester Stallone told the Vedic scholar, Mishrapuri, that he still sees his son Sage (36), who had passed away in 2012.

The astrologer, Mishrapuri allegedly suggested that Stallone performs the Hindu ritual of shradh to ensure peace for the departed. Stallone's half-brother, Michael and his wife were seen in Kankhal, Haridwar, India, performing the “tithi shradh” by the banks of the holy Ganges. Tithi shradh is performed for those who passed away through an accident or by being murdered.

Mishrapuri shared, “In our meeting last year in LA, he [Sylvester Stallone] asked if it is possible to speak to his son. I told him it is possible, but it would be very painful for Sage's soul. He confessed that he had seen his son and that he was deeply disturbed.”

The astrologer also stated that he explained the concept of shradh and its effect on the divine souls. He added, “After checking with the Panchang [sacred calendar], I told him of the date and time when the rituals should be done. He had plans to come here himself, but had to drop them. He then asked his brother to visit. This is a ritual that can be performed by only blood relatives. The family had sought to make it a quiet affair and I provided them details of nondescript hotels they could stay at. After the shradh of Sage, Michael also performed a ceremony for his sister Toni Ann, who died aged 48 in 2012.”
