The desi ‘Rambo’, oh what a valiant effort it was, seems to have thrown in the towel after a grueling 7-year battle. Rahul Raut – has gotten hold of the exclusive scoop that Siddharth Anand and Tiger Shroff’s never-ending saga of a ‘Rambo’ remake has been graciously placed on the temporary shelf of oblivion. Despite numerous attempts to resurrect it since its grand announcement in 2017, it appears this project has been indulging in a prolonged siesta. Originally intended for Siddharth to don the director’s cap, it was later passed off to Rohit Dhawan while Siddharth took up the cushy role of producer. However, even with this switcharoo, the project still seemed to be stuck in quicksand, unable to make any headway.

Just when you thought the ‘Rambo’ rumble had faded into distant memory, last year brought a glimmer of hope as Janhvi Kapoor was roped in to play the leading lady opposite Tiger. But alas, even this spark was not enough to ignite the production engines, as the scheduled liftoff in January was delayed faster than you can say “action!” Now, as April waves goodbye, there’s not a whisper of progress, leaving us all to ponder the bleak future of this cinematic escapade.

The reasons behind Rambo’s sudden halt are as mysterious as the Bermuda Triangle, but our sources suggest it’s all about Tiger’s box office downturn. Tiger’s recent cinematic endeavours – ‘Baaghi 3’, ‘Heropanti 2’, and ‘Ganapath’ – have collectively performed a disappearing act at the box office, failing to even make a splash. ‘Rambo’, with its grandiose budget and epic scale, seems to have given the studio bigwigs cold feet, especially considering the lukewarm reception of Ali Abbas Zafar’s ‘Bade Miyan Chote Miyan’. Disheartened by the ongoing saga of setbacks, Siddharth and Rohit have decided to pack their bags and embark on a new adventure together, leaving ‘Rambo’ in the dust.

The demise of ‘Rambo’ marks yet another chapter in Tiger’s tale of woe, adding insult to injury after the recent demise of his ‘Hero No. 1’ project. With both ‘Rambo’ and ‘Hero No. 1’ taking an extended vacation, Tiger finds himself with just one film in his arsenal – ‘Baaghi 4’, which is still in the embryonic stage of development. And let’s not forget his cameo appearance in Rohit Shetty’s ‘Singham Again’, which is perhaps his only beacon of hope amidst this sea of uncertainty. As for the rumoured two-hero action comedy with Dharma Productions, well, let’s just say it’s currently nothing more than a twinkle in someone’s eye.
