Although there has been no official announcement yet or any update from the filmmaker, a source said the film is in pre-production stage adding that Hrithik will require to train hard to look the part. Sylvester's portrayal of battle-hardened war veteran John Rambo earned him strong reviews and is looked up to to this date.
