NEW DELHI: World-famous action hero and martial arts master Jackie Chan was spotted in the Capital city yesterday, inaugurating the six-day long Chinese Film Festival.
The Hollywood superstar, best known for his stupendous action films, said he is a firm believer in world peace and that we must learn to love our neighbours. “We cannot choose our neighbours. In fact, we should love each other; why hate each other? Through films we need to promote peace,” said Chan.
Dressed in an off-white kurta pyjama, Jackie Chan lamented the short shelf life of an action star. “An action hero’s shelf life is small.”
He also mentioned how he regards Bruce Lee as his mentor, and how he holds him in high regard: “When I was young I used to watch him do his action sequences.”
Chan also recently held a screening of his latest film ‘Chinese Zodiac’ in India.
