Responding to Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone, Tiger Shroff affirmed the original ‘Rambo’ actor that he will not let him down in the remake.

Tiger said, “Humbled and blessed to be walking the road you lay down you are irreplaceable and I hope I don’t let you down sir.”

Tiger Shroff while talking about his upcoming movie also said, “Grew up on this character, humbled and blessed to step into his shoes years later.”

“Being a martial artist and a huge action movie buff since childhood, this all seems very surreal, and I’m very grateful for this opportunity. By no means do I believe I can replace the legendary Sylvester Stallone; however, I do feel that somehow this is something I’ve been preparing for since childhood,” Tiger added.

Saying further, Tiger maintained that while he was excited to get on board for the film, he will never be able to replace Stallone.

A lot of Bollywood stars have already poured in their best wishes for the actor for his upcoming project. Industry star Hrithik Roshan said, “Dear Tiger, you have been a notable asset to the industry owing to the discipline and dedication. HRX salutes the unsurpassable spirit!”

The remake will be directed by Siddharth Anand and co-produced by M! Capital Ventures, Original Entertainment, Impact Films and Siddharth Anand Pictures.

Principal photography for the film is slated to start in February next year, with a release targeted for late 2018.
