Bollywood actor Tiger Shroff has been finalised for Indian remake of Hollywood action film ‘Rambo’, which featured Sylvester Stallone.
“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.” Tiger said in a statement.
The Hindi remake is targeting a 2018 release, with the shoot expected to begin next year.
Sidharth Anand, who directed Hrithik Roshan in ‘Bang Bang’, will be directing the film.
“‘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” Sidharth said.
Tiger awaits the release of ‘Munna Michael’ and ‘Baaghi 2’.
