Aamir Khan ditches Jackie Chan’s ‘Kung Fu Yoga’ for ‘Dangal’
Superstar Aamir Khan was recently in China for the premier of his hit flick ‘PK‘ . The perfectionist met with Chinese action star Jackie Chan at the event. It had been reported that Khan will be collaborating with Chan on an Indo-Chinese production. The project, titled ‘Kung Fu Yoga’, will highlight USPs of the two nations.
Apparently, this project is part of the three-film agreement signed between the two countries during Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to India last year. Looking at the growing popularity of Bollywood films in China, the agreement is meant to help both the countries.
Aamir Khan has cleared the air on the subject. He said that he is not doing a film with Jackie Chan because he will be shooting for his upcoming biopic ‘Dangal’. Aamir Khan said, “Jackie is planning that film with director Stanley Tong, who has made number of Jackie’s films. It is not possible for me to do it (film). I would have loved to do it. They are shooting in September-October and that time I will be busy with Dangal. I can start any film in August-September next year.”
Aamir Khan further added that, “I have been a big fan of him. I had seen his film Police Story in back-to-back shows in a theatre. He is not an action hero Alone, his comic timing is superb. I told him I am big fan of him. I have seen lot of his films. I told him how popular he is in India. He was very happy to know about it.”
The two superstars have formed a mutual admiration club, so hope to see them collaborating at some future project soon.
