The latest reports doing the rounds in Bollywood sections of portals are about Tiger Shroff being replaced by Telugu superstar Prabhas in the Indian version of the Sylvester Stallone classic Rambo.
“Rubbish,” says Tiger refuting the report. “Where on earth is this coming from, and why?” In brief, much to the Prabhas followers’ grief, Tiger is very much in the Rambo project.
As Tiger Shroff gets ready to play Sylvester Stallone’s role in the desi remake of Stallone’s first ‘Rambo’ film First Blood which was released in 1982, two questions are being repeatedly asked by fans. Why a First Blood remake 40 years later? And secondly, would Stallone make an appearance in Tiger’s belated remake?
Stallone who has made an appearance in the Sajid Nadiadwala-produced , Sabbir Khan-directed Akshay-Kareena starrer Kambhakkt Ishq in 2009, may be seen making a brief appearance in Tiger’s Rambo. Stallone had tweeted his approval of the Siddharth Anand-directed remake featuring Tiger.
Tiger is all for the idea of having Stallone in the desi Rambo. “Why not? It’d be great. Right now I am just super-excited about stepping into Mr Stallone’s shoes. It’s a formidable place to be in.We all know what the first Rambo film meant to the series.”
The role was first offered by director Siddharth Anand to Hrithik Roshan. It makes Tiger even more awed.
