Actor Tiger Shroff is living his fan moment, it seems. He has his reasons, too. After all, none other than action legend Sylvester Stallone has wished him luck for the Indian remake of the Hollywood action drama First Blood, which first introduced the character of John Rambo. The message was on Stallone’s Instagram page. The gesture has floored the 27-year-old Tiger. He replied to Stallone with a heartwarming message.
While Stallone wrote: “I actually get excited in my heart whenever young artists get a rare opportunity to reach for the stars! Eye of the Tiger! I am sure he will put his heart and soul into it…” Replying to the Hollywood star, an overwhelmed Tiger wrote how Stallone is undoubtedly the original hero and that he looks up to him. His message read: “Because you were there, we sort of exist, We are all just derivatives of you sir! There will always and only be ONE “eye of the tiger” for us cubs :raised_hands: you rule the jungle! Thank you so much sir! #RAMBO #RamboRemake.”

The Hindi remake of Rambo, with Tiger in the lead, will be helmed by Siddharth Anand. The movie was announced at the ongoing 70th Cannes Film Festival. A poster of the film that Tiger shared recently went viral. It shows Tiger in an angry rugged look in the backdrop of a hi-tech warzone.
Interestingly, Stallone earlier had doubts about whether the Indian remake would be good enough. But later he changed his view.
