Indian Rambo More Rambo-esque Than Imagined

As part of Origin Entertainment’s 5 picture deal with Millennium Films from 2013, Rambo will be getting a Bollywood remake. Announced at Cannes, Siddharth Anand will direct and Tiger Shroff will star. Shooting is scheduled to begin in February 2018. Here’s the synopsis:

The action film will follow the last surviving member of an elite covert unit of the Indian Armed forces who returns home to discover a war waging in his own land. Forced into the dangerous jungles and frozen mountains of the Himalayas, he unleashes mayhem and destruction, becoming the unstoppable machine he was trained to be.

Based on stereotypes Bollywood has instilled in me, I was expecting Rambo to have a thick Tom Selleck-like mustache. This one just has a faint beard. That’s disappointing. Just because he’s forced into the jungle to fight for his life doesn’t mean he can’t still have a perfectly coiffed mustache. He’s not a savage for god’s sake.
