Is the setting then about India and Pakistan? Siddharth is only hopeful the team lives up to the expectations. We have taken the mythology of Rambo forward and that’s what we are playing on… More than remaking it,” he said. What he knows is “opinions about the film will be very polarised” — just as they were when Tiger was announced as the actor who will fill Stallone’s big shoes. I am excited about getting that out.

I want the world to sit up and see what India can do with action and emotions,” Siddharth added. People think ‘Rambo’ is just another mindless action film, but it’s not.”
Siddharth hopes the movie goes on floors in February 2018, and is ready in time for a release towards the end of next year.
