Given that it will bring the likes of Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff in one frame, Siddharth Anand’s next has piqued the curiosity of cinephiles within a fortnight of its announcement. However, the interest around this drama has put another Shroff-starrer on the backburner – the official Indian remake of Sylvester Stallone’s 1982 actioner, Rambo.
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 connected with Anand, he pointed to the requirement of a winter set-up for the delay. “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.”
