When we think of Rambo, the only person who comes to our mind is Hollywood star, Sylvester Stallone. The iconic film is surely a favourite amongst many action lovers and continues to be a hit with the audience. Today, a remake of the movie in India has been announced, and it stars none other than Tiger Shroff.
Tiger shared the first poster of the movie on his Instagram page and wrote, “Grew up on this character, humbled and blessed to step into his shoes years later. #RamboRemake. #greatestactionheroofalltime #legend #irreplacable #rambo.”
The movie is being helmed by Siddharth Anand and will go on-floors in February 2018.
On hearing the news of the remake, Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone got on to Twitter and Instagram and expressed his thoughts on the same. While on Twitter Sly wrote, “I read recently they are remaking Rambo in India… I wish them luck .. Great character..”, on Instagram he said, “I read recently they are remaking Rambo in India !! .. Great character.. hope they don’t wreck it.”
Well, we hope the makers of this remake get the message Stallone is trying to give them!
Meanwhile, when Tiger was asked about the remake, he said, “Being a martial artist and a huge action movie buff since childhood, this all seems very surreal, and I’m very grateful for this opportunity. By no means do I believe I can replace the legendary Sylvester Stallone; however, I do feel that somehow this is something I’ve been preparing for since childhood.”
Director Siddharth Anand while talking to a daily about the remake, said, “Rambo is one of the most iconic action blockbuster films from my generation. I grew up looking up to heroes such as Stallone, and in a time where the Indian industry is lacking action characters of Rambo’s caliber, this is a perfect time to introduce Tiger in this role.”
