Star Movies to air Jackie Chan movies as a part of its Hollywood Starter
Said by many to be the ‘second coming of Bruce Lee’, Jackie Chan has established himself as one of the biggest action stars of all time. His expertise in various martial arts remains unrivaled to this day and his influence spans across the 6 continents making him one of the most influential actors of all time.
In India, Jackie Chan is considered by a lot of people to be their childhood icon. Actor Tiger Shroff has gone on record to say that he grew up inspired by him and even wished to reach his level whereas actors Sonu Sood and Disha Patani have went on to work with him. The famous animated television series Jackie Chan Adventures was something that was a staple in every 90’s child's TV routine. So much so that many people have even went on to petition online to bring the series back on air.
On being asked why he hasn’t worked in an Indian Movie and what the fans mean to him, Jackie Chan stated “Sometimes it’s because Indian producers don’t like the script I have or sometimes it’s because I don’t like the script they have. I have been looking for a chance. India is one of the biggest market in the world. So I really want to combine the two cultures together. It would make a great movie.” He further added “The whole world is a Jackie Chan fan. On the internet, they really taught me a lot of things. Whether they like the movie or don’t like the movie. Let’s say they don’t like violence; I change the violence. I learn so many things from the fans! I am very lucky becoming Jackie Chan.“
Celebrating this legendary star’s career, Star Movies will be airing his blockbusters films such as Project A, Police Story 2, The Forbidden Kingdom. Shanghai Knights and Armour of God 2 from 15th June to 19th June as a part of its ‘Hollywood Starter’ film pack at 9 pm.
