Tiger Shroff is prepping to play Sylvester Stallone’s role in the desi remake of Stallone’s first Rambo film, First Blood, which released in 1982. One question is being repeatedly asked by fans: Will Stallone make an appearance in Tiger’s belated remake? It seems legit as Stallone made an appearance in the Sajid Nadiadwala-produced Akshay-Kareena starrer Kambakkht Ishq in 2009. And Sajid is also the producer of this film. And there is speculation that Sly will be seen making a brief appearance in Rambo. Stallone has tweeted his approval of the film on Twitter.

Says an insider, “Sajid is still in touch with Stallone and is thinking of approaching Stallone to do a cameo in Tiger’s tale.” Tiger is all for the idea of having Stallone in the desi Rambo. Tiger says, “Why not? It’d be great. Right now, I am just super-excited about stepping into Mr Stallone’s shoes. It’s a formidable place to be in. We all know what the first Rambo film meant to the series.” Tiger will begin work on his physique soon. “It has to be a different body type. More muscular and athletic,” Tiger adds.
