Tiger Shroff, who is currently shooting for Baaghi 2, the sequel to his 2016 action flick, is expected to wrap up the film by December this year. Tiger had also recently announced the remake of Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone’s 1982 cult actioner Rambo, which would see him star in Stallone’s role. The Rambo remake was supposed to go on floors after Baaghi 2 was completed, however, as it seems, the film is set to be pushed ahead.
Recently, Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff were confirmed for a film together in Siddharth Anand’s next, and it is set to go on floors as soon as Hrithik completes shooting for his Anand Kumar biopic, which is expected to wrap up in December. Tiger is also expected to complete the Anand Kumar biopic in December, and so, Tiger is expected to push back the shooting of the Rambo remake. A source tells mid-day, “Tiger is currently filming Baaghi 2, which will be completed by December. Hrithik will also be available around the same time after he wraps up Vikas Bahl’s biopic on mathematician Anand Kumar.
Given that both actors can commence working on Siddharth’s film next year, the unit decided to go ahead with this project first.” The remake of Rambo, the source adds, has also been put on the backburner since the filmmaker has been asked to revisit the “high” budget. When Mid Day contacted Anand, he said, “Rambo is not an easy project to pull off. Since it needs to be shot in the snow, we will begin filming towards the end of 2018.”
