New Delhi – With Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone already hoping India doesn’t “wreck” an upcoming remake of his iconic actioner “Rambo”, the Hindi film’s director Siddharth Anand is confident of delivering an impactful punch with it. He says he’s going all out to make the world to sit up and see what India can do with action and emotions.
The brawny and rugged look of ac tor Tiger Shroff on the “Rambo” remake’s poster — unveiled at the Cannes Film Festival last month — drew eyeballs.
“Rambo is a global icon. When we launched the film in Cannes, we realised the magnanamity of the character. When we spoke to journalists from across the world, they all were very enthused and keen to know what we will do with it, because it’s a much-loved character,” the director said.
“It’s a character that resonates in every part of the world. We know there will be a lot of fans and detractors — watching it with a keen eye. It has the potential to reach out to people across the globe, and we are aiming to make a film that’s world class in action and emotion,” he said.
“I’m competing on a global level. I do not just want to make a film that’s iconic only in India. I want the world to sit up and see what India can do with action and emotions,” Siddharth added.
