Director Siddharth Anand told Mirror that after he finishes shooting the drama tentatively titled Hrithik vs Tiger with Shroff and Hrithik Roshan, he will start prepping for Rambo in September. Shroff will start his preparations for the role in November. He added that Rambo will be shot in India and abroad, for which the recce will commence soon.

"Rambo is primarily known for its action, but I can promise you that in my film, the story will resonate too with our audience. It's a story that needs to be told, given the present political dynamics in the country. Of course, the action will be big but like Steven Spielberg once said, 'If it’s action without emotions the audience watches dispasstionately.' So, the emotions need to be in sync with the action," the director further said about the film.

The original Rambo series comprises four movie — First Blood (1982), Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985), Rambo III (1988) and Rambo (2008).
