The first look of Rambo, starring Tiger Shroff, is out, and is making a lot of noise on social media. The Hindi remake of the Sylvester Stallone-starrer will be helmed by Siddharth Anand.
Tiger shared the first look of Rambo on social media, and soon two hashtags #Rambo and #RamboRemake started trending. He shared it with the caption, "Grew up on this character, humbled and blessed to step into his shoes years later. #RamboRemake".
The first look poster of Hindi Rambo shows a shirtless Tiger, flaunting his chiseled body with a machine gun in his hand. The background shows a war zone with tanks and choppers.
Tiger's look certainly resembles the appearance that Sylvester carried in the original Hollywood movie.
Even Sylvester learnt about the Hindi remake of Rambo, and shared his views on social media. "I read recently they are remaking Rambo in India!! Great character.. hope they don't wreck it," he posted.
While Tiger's fans have been going gaga over the first look, praising the actor for his new avatar, some others on social media feel that the Hindi remake of Rambo will ruin the character. Some fans commented on Stallone's post, saying that Bollywood cannot make a movie like Rambo.
A few of them even mocked the Rambo remake and added that it will show the macho character dancing and singing around trees. There is a particular section of people who did not like the idea of casting Tiger for the role. Some have opined that Vidyut Jammwal would have suited more as Rambo.
This has led to quite a fight on social media between Tiger's fans and critics of Hindi films. Nevertheless, several Bollywood celebrities have been applauding the first look of Rambo, and wishing Tiger for his next big venture. Check out some of the responses here:
