Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - HT City | Entertainment -

Ac­tor Tiger Shroff (right) will step into the shoes of Hol­ly­wood ac­tor Sylvester Stal­lone (left) for the In­dian re­make of Rambo, and the ac­tor says it would be “cool” to have the Hol­ly­wood star in the film.

Rambo re­make will be di­rected by Sid­dharth Anand, who had pre­vi­ously helmed Hrithik Roshan star­rer Bang Bang (2014).

Tiger is aware that it is a big role, he says he might also get to meet Stal­lone for the film. “Rambo re­make is one of my most ex­cit­ing projects lined up. I am very scared and ex­cited. Scared be­cause I have big shoes to fill, and ex­cited be­cause it is some­thing up my al­ley and I re­ally want to go all out for the film. I am def­i­nitely plan­ning to meet him (Stal­lone), that’s in the pipe­line,” Tiger says.

In an in­sta­gram post ear­lier, Stal­lone, 70, had writ­ten that he was con­fi­dent that Tiger would do a good job and “he will put his heart and soul into it”.

When asked if the mak­ers plan to rope in Stal­lone for a guest ap­pear­ance, Tiger says, “That would be so cool. I think the mak­ers def­i­nitely have some­thing spe­cial planned. But let’s see if that is on the cards or not.” The 27-year-old ac­tor is cur­rently pro­mot­ing his next, Munna Michael, af­ter which he will start work­ing on the se­quel of his hit Baaghi (2016). While the first film of the fran­chise was di­rected by Sab­bir Khan, chore­og­ra­pher­film­maker Ahmed Khan has been roped in to di­rect the se­quel.

About the se­quel, Tiger says, “We are def­i­nitely scal­ing up this one. Ahmed and Sa­jid (Na­di­ad­wala) sir have done a great job work­ing on the script and the story; got on board great writ­ers and some­thing mag­i­cal is go­ing to hap­pen with it.”

The ac­tor 27-year-old ac­tor will fea­ture in film­maker Karan Jo­har- backed Stu­dent of the Year 2, which he says will go on floors some­where around Oc­to­ber-Novem­ber this year.
