Jackie Chan

Iconic actor and filmmaker Jackie Chan, who arrived here on Monday for promoting his upcoming Sino-Indian film "Kung Fu Yoga", says he loves Bollywood and is totally open to the idea of working in a Bollywood movie.  He has been visiting India for the past two decades and is in love with the culture of the country.

"Honestly, as a kid though I used to watch Bollywood movies, neither I understood the language nor those dance music scenes that never interest me. But I think in last 15 years, things have changed a lot. There is good technology, great fight sequences, actions and lot more. I think it is probably one of the best in the world," Jackie answered on being asked if he likes Bollywood films.”

"I want to do a Bollywood film, is there any director to hire me," quipped Jackie Chan at the press conference here.

"I do not want to do any action-comedy films. I am interested in doing romantic Indian films! You know 11 years ago, I tried to do a Bollywood film but that was so melodramatic and I could not fit into that. But now I think I can," he added.

The film also features actor Sonu Sood, who said: "I think during the shooting of the film, Jackie used to get excited whenever we shot for the dance sequences, he would get ready wearing Indian clothes and would start dancing even before the camera rolled."

The movie also has a bunch of Bollywood actors like  Amyra Dastur, Disha Patani  ans Sonu.

Shilpa Shetty introduced Jackie on stage, who teared up a bit and got emotional, "Being an actress I never had this kind of a fan-girl moment. I am feeling blessed to share the stage with Jackie sir."
