What a fatherly love for a troubled son! Action star Jackie Chan has expressed his intense wish to work with his son Jaycee Chan on a movie and an album. It seems the relationship between father and the son is improving after Jaycee was released on Feb. 13, 2015 from his six months of imprisonment on a drug charge. Go through the news to know what the elder Chan feels about the junior.

According to Hollywood Reporter, The 61-year old Jackie said that prison was good for his son as it has made him mature and improved their relationship. He is said to be inspired by the bond between the famous Hollywood star Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith while filming for “The Karate Kid.”

Before, “I was too Chinese, traditional — you, son, go away, I don’t want to help you, you have to help yourself,” Jackie said.

He also said that when he was in the set of “The Karate Kid” with co-star Jaden, he was astonished seeing how Will was “helping his son to be in a movie, every day on the set.” Hence, he said he should break his stubbornness and help his 32-year old son.

Jackie also revealed that he was seeking for suitable movie projects for Jaycee. This year Jaycee would produce one of his records in which both the father and son would sing a duet and the album is expected to be released at the end of 2015.

Jackie previously thought to search any other singer for the album, as he was not sure about his actor-cum-singer son that he would be ready to go for it. He joked saying that his son wrote songs and scripts and read a lot of books in prison and sometimes it might be splendid for some people.

Jackie seems to be very strict in case of social issues. Being an anti-drug ambassador since 2009, as declared by the Chinese government, he earlier said for several times to the media that he would never use his connections to lighten his son’s sentence and finally he had kept his words.
