Sylvester Stallone throws support behind Bollywood Rambo remake

Sylvester Stallone has given his backing to an Indian remake of his Rambo movie franchise.
The Hollywood action hero played John Rambo, a troubled Vietnam War veteran and former U.S. Army Special Forces soldier, in the films, which ran from 1982’s First Blood to Rambo in 2008.
It was recently announced at the Cannes Film Festival that an Indian reboot was in the works, directed by Siddharth Anand and starring up-and-coming Bollywood actor Tiger Shroff, who has appeared in movies such as Heropanti and Baaghi.
Sylvester seemed sceptical about the project when he first mentioned it on social media, writing “hope they don’t wreck it” but he later returned to wish Tiger good luck.
“Some people like to read into words and twist them.. good luck Tiger, go fight the good fight, keep punching ,oh, for the Record, I love it when young artists get an opportunity to go for their dreams!” he wrote on Instagram.
“I actually get excited in my heart whenever young artists get an rare opportunity to reach for the stars! Eye of the Tiger! I am sure you will put all of your heart and soul into it…Never give up young man !”
Tiger, who said he was “humbled and blessed” to step into Sylvester’s shoes, spotted his message and wrote on Instagram, “We are all just derivatives of you sir! There will always and only be ONE ‘eye of the tiger’ for us cubs you rule the jungle! Thank you so much sir! #RAMBO #RamboRemake.”
The film is set to follow the life of the last surviving member of an elite covert unit of the Indian Armed Forces who returns home to discover a war waging in his own land.
