This news caught the attention of Stallone, who made a comment about it on social media.

Sylvester Stallone’s comment

In May 2017, Stallone took to Instagram to share a poster of Tiger Shroff’s upcoming movie, Munna Michael. In the caption, he wrote, “This is what they do in Bollywood. Wishing him great success in his new film, but why do they have to remake everything? I mean, don’t they have any original ideas of their own?”

This comment was seen as a dig at Tiger Shroff and the Hindi remake of Rambo. However, Stallone later clarified his comment in a tweet, saying that he had no intention of insulting Tiger Shroff and that he wished him the best of luck with the movie.

Tiger Shroff’s response

Tiger Shroff, on the other hand, took Stallone’s comment in stride and said that he was honored to be playing the role of Rambo. In an interview with PTI, he said, “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 believe that somehow this is something I’ve been preparing for since childhood.”
