Tiger Shroff has an action-packed few months ahead of him. Sajid Nadiadwala’s Baaghi 3, which also stars Shraddha Kapoor, goes on floors in July after which he will reportedly begin work on the Hindi adaptation of Sylvester Stallone blockbuster Rambo.
The film will be directed by Siddharth Anand, who told Mumbai Mirror that Tiger will start preparing for his role from November and shooting will commence in the new year. The release date has been set for 2 October 2020.
“Rambo is primarily known for its action but I can promise you that in my film, the story will resonate too with our audience. It’s a story that needs to be told, given the present political dynamics in the country,” he said.
The Rambo film franchise is based on David Morrell’s 1972 novel First Blood about John Rambo, a Vietnam War veteran and former US Army Special Forces Soldier. The series includes four films - First Blood (1982), Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985). Rambo III (1988) and Rambo (2008) - with Rambo V: Last Blood scheduled to release in September this year.
Tiger Shroff was last seen opposite Tara Sutaria and Ananya Panday in Student of the Year 2 directed by Punit Malhotra. He will be seen in Baaghi 3 opposite Shraddha Kapoor.
