A few days back the director Siddharth Anand made headlines as Hrithik Roshan was thought to be playing the Rambo avatar in the Hindi remake. The news was a sweet surprise for all the Hrithik fans, but currently, the news confirms that it is our very ‘Punjabi Munda’ Sidharth Malhotra will be seen playing the muscular action packed character of Rambo initially portrayed by Rambo Sylvester Stallone.The real reason though not disclosed. But it is assumed that Hrithik is working on multiple projects like ‘Mohenjo Daro’ and ‘Kaabil’.The sources talked to media saying:
“Talks with Hrithik didn’t materialise and then Sidharth Anand, the director, approached Sidharth Malhotra to star in his ambitious project. It will be an official remake of the hit series starring Sylvester Stallone.”
But signing Sidharth is quite a trouble taking task right now, as he is busy with multiple projects like next action film with Jacqueline, and then comes the Ittefaq remake and finally Aashiqui 3. So there is a queue of movies and it is technically impossible to work on multiple projects as well as being prepared for a film to represent Sylvester Stallone is not easy.
Sidharth Malhotra is on cloud nine after his last release’s success ‘Kapoor and Sons’ opposite Alia Bhatt. He entered Bollywood under Karan Johar directorial ‘Student of the Year’. His good looks and talent were well acknowledged from his initial days in Bollywood.
The female lead of the movie has not decided yet, and not even the plot or story of this upcoming project has been disclosed. But the makers of the movie have confirmed that the movie will not go on the floor at the end of 2017.
Desi Rambo is part of Original Entertainment’s five-picture deal with Millennium Films for Bollywood remakes.
