With much fanfare, Siddharth Anand announced Rambo two years ago. The director after several discussions roped in Tiger Shroff to play the lead. The poster that was released last year was welcomed with much appreciation. However, there wasn’t much progress on the film front. But now we hear that the Hindi version, Rambo, will kick off in 2019.
Based on the David Morrell novel ‘First Blood’, the original Rambo starred Sylvester Stallone as John Rambo, a troubled Vietnam War veteran. Rambo’s character has worked as former U.S. Army Special Forces soldier. Hence, he is skilled in many aspects of survival, weaponry, hand-to-hand combat and guerrilla warfare.
Further talking about the Hindi remake, Anand also revealed that it will be shot extensively in Europe and Himalayas. Earlier, when he had announced the film, the filmmaker had maintained that Rambo will be a trilogy. There were also speculations that Hrithik Roshan might be playing the lead role. However, the deal didn’t materialize and later, Tiger was brought on board.
Interestingly, before kick starting Rambo, Siddharth Anand is already working with Tiger Shroff in YRF’s untitled next. The film also stars Hrithik Roshan in the lead and Vaani Kapoor as the leading lady. Before Rambo, Anand and Tiger will be wrapping up the said film. Besides that, Tiger’s Baaghi 2 is slated for release in the next couple of months. Apart from these projects, the Gen Y star will also be starring in Punit Malhotra’s Student Of The Year 2.
