But Siddharth Anand
who is directing the film has locked down Tiger Shroff
to play John Rambo! Talking about the film, Tiger was quoted saying, "Being a martial artist and a huge action movie buff since childhood, this all seems very surreal. 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."
Anand who previously helmed the 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."
The film will be given an Indian angle where Rambo will be the last man standing of a special unit of Indian Armed forces, who returns and finds out about the ongoing war in his homeland.
This is how the plot is supposed to be!
Well, tell us if Tiger is the best choice for the role?
