The film will have both Indian and Chinese actors in important roles. Actor Sonu Sood has only good things to say about Jackie Chan. The young actor gushed about Jackie’s humble nature and a good taste for offering the right kind of hospitality.

Sood was impressed by the way Jackie Chan helped picking up tents when the shooting was completed on the sets. He also recalled that Jackie Chan was the sort of guy who picks up bottles etc from the road to clear way. He loved the way Chan would extend his hospitality to everybody who showed up for his dinner party – offering food to everyone, starting conversations to put people at ease. Sood was so struck by Chan’s humble nature that he declared, “He doesn’t act like a star.”


It was recently revealed that the Indian production house Viacom 18 had withdrawn from producing the movie. However, Jackie Chan are still working on the film and the film will be produced by the Chinese partners, Taihe Entertainment Corp. and Shinework Media.

The national, Wall Street Journal and Whatson reported the news first.
