Director Siddharth Anand is all set to direct Tiger Shroff in the Hindi remake of the 1982 Hollywood cult classic Rambo. The film, starring Sylvester Stallone, is considered a landmark Hollywood action film.
In an interview with IANS, Anand said that with this movie he will be competing on a global level. Thus, he intends to make a movie that’s not just iconic in India but one that would make “the world to sit up and see what India can do with action and emotions”.
The director’s last film was a remake of the Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz film Knight and Day, as Bang Bang with Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif.
Anand said, “I suddenly switched to action and took to it like fish takes to water. I really enjoyed the thrill of what I could bring to screen, the kind of action we did in ‘Bang Bang!’. I was wanting to take it further, and what better character than Rambo.”
Anand also said that Rambo would resonate with his voice throughout. “‘Rambo’ will have my voice, the way I see an issue prevailing in our country and which is what the character is fighting for. I am excited about getting that out. People think ‘Rambo’ is just another mindless action film, but it’s not,” he said.
