Karthik Gattamneni on inspiration behind the film Eagle

In a recent interview, director of Eagle Karthik Gattamneni said that he is an ardent fan of Rambo and wanted to adopt a similar plot for his film Eagle. He said, "I was a huge fan of films like Rambo and The Terminator series. Those films did not have heroes with an active persona, yet they made for such satisfying theatrical experiences. Heroes of these films, more often than not, aligned themselves with a larger cause. I adopted a similar approach for Eagle." Meanwhile, the film released in theatres on February 9.
