Jackie Chan on CNN’s Talk Asia

Mumbai: Thirty years and more than a hundred films later, Jackie Chan is Asia’s leading man in Hollywood and a cultural icon at home. For the first time the martial arts superstar joins CNN’s flagship chat show Talk Asia with host Anjali Rao and gives a special tour around his private hideaway in Hong Kong.
Chan discusses his role as an ambassador for the much-debated Beijing Olympic Games and Talk Asia is given exclusive access to him as he shoots his music video for the Olympic theme song on the Great Wall of China. "Olympics is about Olympics and exercise spirit. It’s not about politics. Everybody should support."
As to the recent worldwide protests against China’s human rights issues, Chan commented, "Everybody can see China change all these years. You cannot change in one day. We know the problem, we change slowly. We change. We have 1.4 billion people, not 300 million. There are so many problems in China."
The man talks about childhood, his parents and his career. He also touches on the subject of criminal involvement in the Hong Kong film industry and acknowledges there is a problem. "They tried to threaten me, twenty people came with knives".
