We last told you that ‘Kung Fu Yoga’ where EXO Lay is playing a part will be heading to India for a shoot and guess what? It’s now confirmed!
Jackie Chan is finally making his way to India to shoot the last installment of his action-mystery-adventure drama Kung Fu Yoga. As per the news sources the Stanley Tong’s directorial venture starring Jackie Chan, Lay, Sonu Sood, Aarif Rahman, Amrya Dastur and Disha Patani amongst others are through with their schedules in Beijing and Dubai, with the latest schedule being wrapped up last month in Iceland.
The filming cast and crew shall now move to India and has zeroed down on the Jodhpur palace in Rajasthan to shoot certain bollywood style dance sequences on March 20th!
A source revealed that Jackie Chan shall be filming for a dance number donning a bright red kurta, green mojris and a dhol slung around his neck. He shall be joined by his Indian co-stars Disha Patani and Amyra Dastur on the shoot.
A Mumbai based news source reported, “Since Jackie Chan is flying in, the whole venue is being cordoned off. Security checks have as of now started and a international team of bodyguards is being bought in with the unit. The Indian schedule will be the last one and the most expensive.”
Besides the dance number, there will also be a filming schedule in India which is the final installment of the movie and it is expected to go on for two to three weeks and shall also move to another location in India that is being kept under wraps.
There is no confirmation as to whether Lay is a part of the Indian schedule or not but since Lay plays a significant role of being Jackie Chan’s assistant in the movie, we believe and hope that he shall be a part of the Indian schedule!
How can we assume that? Well, if you check out the story line of the movie, it says that Xiaguang (played by Lay) follows Jackie Chan to India to finally unlock the treasure! So unless there has been a plot twist, we can safely assume that Lay will be a part of the Indian shoot too! Check out the story line below and let us know what you think.
“Kung Fu Yoga is a story about a renowned professor of archeology Jack (Jackie Chan) at Terracotta Warriors Museum in Xian, China. With the aid of his assistants Xiaoguang (Zhang Yixing/Lay) and Nuomin (Miya Muqi) and Indian counterparts Professor Ashmita, assistant Kyra and Jones Lee (Aarif Rahman) he embarks on the journey to locate India’s lost Magadh treasure in Tibet. However he is ambushed by Randall (Sonu Sood), a rebel army leader who wants the treasure to himself. In the run and chase that follows across continents, Jack and his assistants fly to India. With the turnaround of the events they finally travel to the Sacred Mountain to unlock the treasure.”
Looks like it’s going to get hotter in this part of the world as after an seemingly unending wait, the Kung Fu Yoga team is finally making its way to India. And if we are to believe the film’s story line, we might just get to breathe the same air as our favorite “healing unicorn” here in India!!
It maybe mentioned that Kung Fu Yoga is being jointly produced by Shinework Media and Taihe Entertainment. It is the first of the 3 film agreement under the Indo-China co-production agreement which was signed during President Xi Jinping’s visit to India.
