I became an Aamir fan overnight: Jackie Chan


Jackie Chan has always been vocal about his love for India, and now, the Hollywood actor has confessed his love for Aamir Khan, too.

"I watch very few Bollywood movies, but I loved 3 Idiots (2009). It was a huge success in Hong Kong. I became an Aamir Khan fan overnight. I think he is a terrific actor," says the 60-year-old Chinese star.

The Dragon Blade actor, who last visited India in 2013 to inaugurate a Chinese film festival, tells us that he will be back soon to shoot for a film. "I am planning to start a new movie called Kung Fu Yoga. So, I will be returning to film it in India. Hopefully, we will start filming in autumn," he adds.

Jackie is open to acting in Bollywood too. He says, "I don’t think about acting in terms of doing a Bollywood or Hollywood movie. The most important thing is the script. So yes, if there is a good script here, I would love to do a film."

In fact, scripts are so important for the actor that he has still not worked with another action star, Sylvester Stallone, because he is yet to find a worthwhile script for them to collaborate on.

"I have been talking to Stallone about working together, but we haven’t found the right script so far. The discussion is still open and I hope that one day, we will feature on a poster together," says the actor, who had earlier refused a role in Stallone’s 2014 film, The Expendables 3.
