Hollywood star, Stallone reacted to the Indian remake of his film Rambo and wrote on social media, “I read recently they are remaking Rambo in India !! Great character.. hope they don’t wreck it .”
Tiger replied to Stallone saying that, “Humbled and blessed to be walking the road you lay down. You are irreplaceable and I hope I don’t let you down sir @TheSlyStallone #RamboRemake”
Tiger also 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.”
Siddharth Anand, the director of the film shared, “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. I cannot wait to work with Tiger on this film. He has that aura about him, a power and vulnerability that will make him the next iconic action hero of our time.”
The Indian remake of Rambo will follow the last surviving member of an elite covert unit of the Indian Armed Forces who returns home to discover a war waging in his own land. In the dangerous jungles and mountains of Himalayas, he unleashes destruction, becoming the unstoppable machine he was trained to be.
Rambo will be produced by M! Capital Ventures, Original Entertainment, Impact Films and Siddharth Anand Pictures. The film is scheduled to start shooting in February 2018, with a release targeted for late 2018. Watch this space for more updates on Rambo!
