Tiger Shroff has been already on-board for a Hindi adaptation of Rambo which originally is a film starring Sylvester Stallone. The adaptation which is alleged to be directed by Rohit Dhawan replacing Siddharth Anand, shall be produced by Yash Raj Films. According to a report by Bollywood Hungama, YRF has signed a multi-film contract with director Siddharth Anand and film Rambo shall be a co-production of them both as the latter had the rights for the remake. The film is yet to be signed by Rohit Dhawan.
According to a source of Bollywood Hungama, “Siddharth Anand had the rights of Rambo for a while now and always had the plans of spinning a desi version with Tiger. However, the film kept getting delayed, first due to War and then due to his upcoming venture Pathan which is a battle royal between Shah Rukh Khan and John Abraham. Sid has a deal with YRF and with not enough time in his hands to direct Rambo, he decided to partner with YRF to spin a franchise with Tiger Shroff. It will be a co-production of YRF and Sid, with the latter being involved in script and other creative aspects of the film too. The studio is in talks with Rohit to helm the franchise, however the young director is yet to sign on for the film.”
Just like original Hollywood movie, this Rambo too shall be a multi-film franchise and can only be released in late 2021 as Tiger Shroff has Heropanti 2 due to be worked on. A lot of films are to be announced under YRF Project 50 however Rambo won’t be a part of it. The film is still in its early stage of discussion and shall be unveiled only after the director and the script gets finalised. Producer Aditya Chopra is seen having a reasonable faith in director Siddharth Anand after the success of ‘War’ on the big screen.
