Hollywood superstar Sylvester Stallone recently got a shradh ceremony performed for his deceased son Sage in Haridwar in Uttarakhand, reported The Times of India.

According to the report, the actor told an Indian astrologer that he still 'sees' his dead son Sage, who had died in 2012 of a heart disease at the age of 36.

Last week, Stallone sent some of his family members to Haridwar, including half-brother Michael and his wife, to perform a "shradh" or a funeral ceremony held for the peace of the deceased's soul.

The TOI report further states, "Sylvester Stallone's family performed shradh for his dead son, Sage, after being advised by astrologer Prateek Mishrapuri to do so. They returned to Philadelphia after performing the `tithi shradh', done for those who meet their end through accident or murder."

Sage had appeared with his father in the 1990 movie Rocky V and at the time of his death he had been working as a producer.

Stallone was extremely depressed after his son's death and even wanted to contact him through seances, adds the report.

"It's tough it's very, very, tough," Stallone had said on Good Morning America of his son's death, adding that he was "hanging in there".

He met Mishrapuri last year, when the former was visiting Los Angeles.

“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,“ Mishrapuri told TOI.
