Hong Kong martial artist actor Jackie Chan, who is in India to promote his forthcoming film “Kung Fu Yoga” is quite amazed at Bollywood dance style and believes that it has improved a lot.
On Monday, the 62-year-old Chan said at the event “When I was 16, I watched Bollywood movies. I didn’t understand the language and I went away after seeing the dance. But for the last 15 years, I watch Hindi films. Why? Because of the dancing, the movements are so good, probably the best in the world.”
He added “Earlier in Bollywood and Chinese films, the actions and dancing were not up to the mark. But now we have money and technology and now we can train people. Currently, Bollywood produces some of the best films in Asia.”
Chan starts acting in the movies over 50 years; he said “You’ve been growing up watching me when your father took you to see my movies. Now I want that you should take your parents to see my movie.”
Chan said about his love for the Indian people, “I know Indian people love me and I love them too. I come here for making movies, charities, film festivals because I love you all.”
Chan said about his motivation for doing an action at this age are his fans from all over the world. “I’ve been doing actions all my life. Do I scare? Yes I do. Every time when I do the action, I think this is probably my last shot. But when I see my fans and I can’t meet them one by one. What can I do for them?”
“The only thing I can do to bring different kinds of comedies, actions, and different kind of roles. I don’t know how many years I can continue to make films, but as long as I can move, I will do the best for you.”
The Upcoming film of Jackie Chan “Kung Fu Yoga” is directed by Stanley Tong, the action-adventure comedy film also starrer Sonu Sood, Aarif Rahman, Disha Patani, Miya Muqi, Amyra Dastur and Zhang Yixing.
The film is going to release in China on January 28th and in India on February 3rd.
