Tiger captioned the pic as: "Grew up on this character, humbled and blessed to step into his shoes years later. #RamboRemake (sic)."
Speaking about the remake to a section of media, Tiger said, "Being a martial artiste 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."
Siddharth Anand will direct the film, and he promises it will be even more slick than his last directorial, Bang Bang.
The film revolves around the story of a soldier, who is the last surviving member of an elite covert unit. He returns home to find out about the ongoing war within the country and faces the enemy upfront and causes them the maximum damage.
Sylvester Stallone also spoke about the Rambo remake on his social media accounts. However, he warned Tiger Shroff and Siddharth Anand not to wreck it.
Sly captioned the pic as: "I read recently they are remaking Rambo in India !! .. Great character... hope they don't wreck it (sic)."
The film will be releasing in late February 2018 and we too hope, like Stallone, that the Bollywood remake, if not better, at least stands at par with the original.
