Tiger Shroff shares the First Look of Rambo
After Baaghi 2, Tiger Shroff has announced his next action thriller Rambo for the year 2018 at Cannes couples of days back. On 20th May Sunday, the actor took to Twitter to share the first look of the film. He captioned, “Grew up on this character, humbled and blessed to step into his shoes years later. #RamboRemake”.
Rambo is remake of Sylvester Stallone’s four films series Rambo, which was first introduced in 1982. The Hindi remake, which is scheduled to be released in 2018, being directed by Siddharth Anand and jointly produced by M! Capital ventures, Original Entertainment, Siddharth Anand Pictures and Impact Films.
Reportedly the Hindi remake of Rambo has little change in the story. It 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. Forced into the dangerous jungles and frozen mountains of the Himalayas, he unleashes mayhem and destruction, becoming the unstoppable machine he was trained to be.
Showing gratitude, Tiger said at Cannes, “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.”
The director Anand, who had also directed Hrithik Roshan starrer Bang Bang 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,”.
“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,” Anand added.
After knowing about the Hindi remake, the real Rambo Sylvester Stallone showed his support for it but in his own style. He wrote, “I read recently they are remaking Rambo in India !! .. Great character.. hope they don’t wreck it,”. To which Tiger replied in a humble way, “Humbled and blessed to be walking the road u lay down 🙏❤ u r irreplaceable and I hope I don’t let you down sir @TheSlyStallone #RamboRemake.”
