Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif, who was slated to act with international actor Jackie Chan in his upcoming film said the project has gone out of her.
While other details are not known, the much-talked about project was almost finalized when the news began to make rounds that Katrina, 32, will act in Jackie Chan’s film. The actress said she is too busy with Hindi films on hand but denied to to reveal more.
“I need to be here, and work on the films I have in the Hindi film industry,” she told media. “I never speak about offers. If you aren’t doing a film, why must you talk about it? Whoever else does it will speak about it.”
Martial Arts Superstar Jackie Chan’s upcoming movie ‘Kung Fu Yoga’ was to be directed by Stanley Tong, who is a Hong Kong based film maker with other well-known movies such as ‘Rumble in the Bronx’.
It was almost taken for certain since Katrina Kaif, who was also born in Hong Kong, grew up in UK and became Bollywood’s top heroine, was a natural choice for any International Film opposite Jackie Chan, since her accent is natural for any such film.
Moreover, the film was about an ancient Indian story-line in which she was supposed to have played an Indian Professor at a Chinese University and Jackie Chan portraying Chinese Archaeologist who seeks the actress help to reveal treasures from the Magadh period in India.
Similar to “Baahubali”, the story line of “Kung Fu Yoga” revolves around a treasure belonging to King Bimbisara, son of Maurya Chandragupta, the founder of Magadh Empire during the period 542 BC to 450 BC.
