‘Dabangg’s’ bad guy Sonu Sood will soon be seen sharing screen space with action master Jackie Chan for his next film ‘Kung Fu Yoga’. Earlier the talks of Aamir Khan starring in the film were doing its rounds, which was put to rest by the actor who stated that his schedule for ‘Dangal’ will not allow him to take up any other films. And it looks like Sonu Sood has landed that opportunity to work with none other than Jackie Chan. And guess how we found this out?
Well, Sonu Sood’s ex director and good friend Farah Khan took to her Twitter handle to reveal this awesome news by tweeting, “So happy for Jackie chan who is starring with my friend @SonuSood in “ Kung fu yoga”!! Truly Karate meets parathe!!” The witty Farah got an immediate response from Sood who wrote, “Hahaha Farah. Don’t be surprised if he gets addicted to paranthe then u have to make for us. Get ready.”
Not just that, King Khan Shah Rukh himself posted a photo of Sonu Sood with Jackie Chan and wrote, “Two of my absolutely favourite men in the world. Way to go Sonu and please tell Jackie I want to come and see him.” Well we’re sure SRK will get to meet Jackie Chan soon in no time!
Well after watching ‘Farah Ki Daawat’, we’re pretty sure she will nail the paranthe if she ever makes it for Jackie Chan and Sonu Sood! Coming back to ‘Kung Fu Yoga’, as the name suggests the film will be closely tied to cultures of India and China. Thus it was obvious that an Indian actor will have a prime role in the film, and now we know its Sonu Sood. Looking at Sood’s history of action filled roles in almost each of his film, we think he’s a good choice for this role! The hard working actor will surely make India proud by sharing the screen space with Jackie Chan.
Earlier it was also announced that Jackie Chan’s upcoming film ‘Kung Fu Yoga’ will be shot in India under the India-China coproduction agreement. For which India’s Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and China’s Taihe Entertainment Corporation and Shinework Media have come together. The last movie done by Jackie Chan with an Indian actor was ‘The Myth’ starring Mallika Sherawat. We cannot wait to see Sonu and Jackie together in ‘Kung Fu Yoga’!
