Siddharth Anand take on Bollywood Rambo
The Hindi remake of Rambo, with Tiger in the lead, will be directed by Siddharth Anand.
The remake of the movie was announced at the ongoing 70th Cannes Film Festival. A poster of the film that Tiger shared recently went viral which shows Tiger in an angry rugged look in the backdrop of a hi-tech warzone.
Sid Anand told fans there would be none of the singing and dancing often associated with Bollywood however,
“I wouldn’t do that to Rambo. That’s like blasphemy.”
“Rambo is a global icon. He resonates in every part of the world, so it’s important to start our campaign at the Mecca of film-making.”
He said he was driven to remake the movie because of the strength of the character of the “true blue action hero with a heart”, immortalized by Stallone,
“It makes you think, and is about a situation that’s prevailing in India and is unique in that way.”
Stallone also posted a message on social media, saying Rambo was a “great character“, with the caption,
“Hope they don’t wreck it.”
But he later sent a message to Shroff himself, wishing him the best of luck, the director Sid said,
“He has been kind enough to Tweet about it. It’s like an endorsement from God himself.“
“Those kinds of films aren’t really made anymore. So that made me excited to bring it to a young generation.”
