I only offered 'Rambo' to Tiger Shroff says, Director
Siddharth Anand, who is directing the Indian remake of Hollywood's iconic film Rambo, says he only approached Tiger Shroff for the title role as the talented and spirited young actor was the "apt choice" to fill in Sylvester Stallone's shoes.
"I was certain I wanted a young boy for it. Tiger (we) felt (was) just a natural and apt choice for us. Fortunately, he loved it and came on board," Siddharth said, clarifiying that he had only discussed Rambo with Hrithik Roshan considering he is his good friend and confidante – but not with an intention to cast him."
"Hrithik and I were clear we wouldn't do another remake immediately after Bang Bang! (the official adaptation of 'Knight and Day').
Tiger's rugged look in the poster had attracted many eyeballs."Tiger has made waves with the poster," Siddharth said, adding how it was very encouraging for the team when Hollywood's original Rambo, Sylvester Stallone, tweeted it.
