Maybe Stallone is anxious about the Indian Rambo putting his killing tools down for a bit and dancing around in the fields with a lady he has feelings for, a scene typical in Bollywood movies. "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 ideal time to introduce Tiger in this role".
The film, the first "Rambo" movie since Stallone starrer "Rambo" in 2008, will start shooting in February and hit theaters late 2018.
India/Bollywood's rising action star Tiger Shroff (Baaghi, Heropanti) will star in the official Indian remake of Rambo, to be directed by Siddharth Anand (Bang Bang). M!
A lot of rumors surrounding of Indian Rambo remake starring Tiger Shroff as the protagonist broke. Hope Mr. Shroff repeats the same magic as Sylvester in the past.
Filmmakers did make sure to maintain all aesthetic of the Hollywood franchise in while designing the poster and any avid Rambo fan could spot the similarity between "First Blood". That time, it grossed more than $125 million worldwide.
The buzz around the remake is huge in India. I wish them luck. "Being a martial artist he has that much of capable for doing this film". The movie will be directed by Siddharth Anand, previously known for Bang Bang.
Tiger Shroff while talking about his upcoming movie also said, "Grew up on this character, humbled and blessed to step into his shoes years later". With these successful remakes, Anand proves he can do the remake of Rambo film. The Bollywood remake of "Knight and Day" had Hrithik Roshan. Other Bollywood remakes include Heyy Babyy (Three Men and A Baby), We Are Family (Stepmom), Kyon Ki (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest), Kaante (Reservoir Dogs), and God Tussi Great Ho (Bruce Almighty). Both movies were successes at the box office.
The poster shows a rugged and surprisingly tough-looking Tiger in the backdrop of a hi-tech warzone. "Grew up on this character, humbled and blessed to step into his shoes years later", he tweeted.
Yes, you can soon expect the Rambo in Bollywood. He comes home to find a war in his own land.
Sylvester Stallone really does not want to have his iconic legacy of "Rambo" wrecked.
