Tiger Shroff to play the lead role in the Rambo remake

Rising star Tiger Shroff will be playing the iconic action character in the Rambo remake, which will be directed by Siddharth Anand (Bang Bang) and co-produced by M!

Anticipation for the Indian Rambo is huge across the country, where the casting of the lead character had been generating a great deal of speculation in the local media.

The project’s producing team includes Anand, Daljit DJ Parmar, Samir Gupta, Hunt Lowry, Saurabh Gupta and Gulzar Inder Chahal.

“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,” said Shroff recently.

“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 first orignal Rambo film released in 1982, which made over $125 million at the box office worldwide. Since then, the film has been followed by a number of successful remakes, including the most recent Rambo (2008), which earned $113 million around the world.

“Rambo is one of the most iconic action blockbuster films from my generation,” said Anand, who also directed Bang Bang, the successful Indian remake ($55 million worldwide) of Tom Cruise’s Knight and Day.

“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.”

Anand further said, “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.”
