Bollywood hunk Tiger Shroff has been confirmed for the Indian remake of Hollywood action-flick ‘Rambo’, which stars the iconic action superstar Sylvester Stallone.
Speaking about the movie which will be helmed by ‘Bang Bang’ director Siddharth Anand, an excited Tiger said, “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. 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.”
Talking about Tiger Shroff, director Anand said, “The movie ‘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.”
Meanwhile, the ‘Heropanti’ actor is currently working on projects like ‘Munna Michael’ and ‘Baaghi 2′ in which he will be seen next.
