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 35 years later? And secondly, would Stallone make an appearance in Tiger s belated remake?
Buzz is that Stallone who has made an appearance in the Sajid Nadiadwala-produced, Sabbir Khan directed Akshay Kumar–Kareena Kapoor starrer Kambakkht Ishq in 2009, will be seen making a brief appearance in Tiger s Rambo. Stallone has tweeted his approval of the Siddharth Anand-directed 35-year late remake. The fact that Sajid and Sabbir, who are still in touch with Stallone, forged Tiger s debut film and are very protective of him would help bring Stallone to Tiger s tale.
Tiger Shroff 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.
Tiger would begin work on his physique soon. It has to be a different body type – more muscular and athletic.
The role was first offered by director Siddharth Anand to Hrithik Roshan. It makes Tiger Shroff even more awed. First stepping into Mr Stallone s role and then stepping into a place where my idol was supposed to be what more could I ask for?
Tiger Shroff looks forward to sharing screen space with Hrithik Roshan soon. That would be a dream come true, sighs the fan-boy.
