Will return to India to film 'Kungfu Yoga': Jackie Chan

Thu, Mar 26, 2015, 02:52 PM
New Delhi, March 26, 2015: Asian cinematic icon Jackie Chan, whose latest actioner "Dragon Blade" hits Indian screens on Friday, says he may come down to the country to shoot his new film "Kungfu Yoga", the first project under a India-China co-production agreement signed during President Xi Jinping's visit here last September.

When Chan last visited India in 2013, he spoke to this IANS correspondent about the need for encouraging movie collaborations and cultural exchange between the two countries.

Is he pioneering something in that direction?

"Yes, I am planning to start a new movie called 'Kungfu Yoga'. That means I will be returning to film in India. Perhaps next time you will interview me on a set," Chan, who will turn 61 next month, told IANS in an email interview from Beijing.

The star of movies like "Police Story", "Rush Hour" and "The Myth", Chan will be seen in a prominent role in "Kungfu Yoga".

From the film's title, one believes it will be a perfect amalgamation of Chinese martial art Kungfu, and the art of Yoga, which originated in ancient India and now thrives around the world.

Chan's earlier India collaboration has been with Bollywood beauty Mallika Sherawat in his 2005 film "The Myth". But will his association with the Indian entertainment industry include a Bollywood film?
