The Sharan starrer Rambo 2 directed by Anil Kumar, is all set to hit the marquee on May 18 and the team is busy with the promos.
While expectations are high from the film, we hear that Rambo 2 will not be similar to Rambo, which was a big hit in Sharan’s career. Incidentally, Rambo was Sharan’s 100th movie and he had also produced it under his home banner.
Speaking about Rambo 2, its creative head Tarun Sudhir had reportedly told TOI it would be completely different from Rambo and there would be no similarities.
"The similarity ends with the title, although in spirit both films are alike. Rambo was a comedy thriller, a genre that Rambo 2 also follows, only that this time around, it is a road movie, with nearly 80% of the narrative taking place on a journey,” explains Tarun.
While Rambo was centered on one car, it will be two in Rambo 2, he said. The entire team that had worked in Rambo was retained for Rambo 2 and there were just two changes to the cast and crew, with cameraman Sudhakar and heroine Ashika being replaced.
Sharan, apart from playing the lead role, is also producing this film under his banner along with music composer Arjun Janya, cameraman Sudhakar Raj and editor K M Prakash. While Sharan plays the lead role in the movie, Ashika will be seen playing the other lead with Chikkanna in a pivotal role.
Bollywood choreographer Shraey Khanna will be entering Sandalwood with Rambo 2.
Sharan, who is desperately in need of a big hit right now, began his acting career way back in 1996 with Prema Prema Prema and starred in films such as Karpoorada Gombe, Yuvarajam Friends, Tananam Tananam, Ee Preethi Yeke Bhoomi Melide, Johny Mera Naam Preethi Mera Kaam, Rambo, etc. His recent releases such as Nataraja Service, Raj Vishnu, and Satya Harishchandra did not too well at the box office and that star is looking to re-establish himself with a massive success.
With Rambo 2 ready for release, Sharan will be moving over to another untitled film which is touted to be the remake of the Malayalam hit flick Two Countries.
