It instantly brings to mind a much-hyped Bollywood adaptation of the franchise that was announced with Tiger Shroff. The film, however, has reportedly been put on hold as the director Siddharth Anand felt it was too ambitious a film to attempt now.

The filmmaker has instead gone ahead and made a two-hero film, 'War' with Hrithik Roshan and Tiger, which is up for release soon.

Since he was constantly in discussion with Hrithik for 'War', they decided to go with it. The actor-director also believed that the experience would help them be prepared and scale up for 'Rambo

So, fans who've been waiting to see Rambo reinvented for Bollywood, can now look forward to Siddharth-Tiger's action extravaganza, which is likely to go on floors by 2020. Source: ETimes
