Look forward to another Chinese-Bollywood crossover with former EXO member Luhan starring in the upcoming chinese movie ‘Time Raiders‘ with Indian actress Mallika Sherawat!
The news of ‘Time Raiders‘ comes after that of Indo-Sina movie ‘Kung-Fu Yoga‘ which starred EXO’s Lay alongside Sonu Sood and ‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage‘ which featured former EXO member Kris Wu alongside Deepika Padukone.
The upcoming Chinese movie ‘Time Raiders‘ (previously known as ‘The Lost Tomb‘) is directed by Daniel Lee and stars Luhan and Chinese actor Jing Boran taking on the lead roles. The movie rolled out its first teasers on May 12th!
But that’s not all! Indian actress Mallika Sherawat is also the part of this venture with a guest appearance! As per her official Twitter (mallikasherawat), she shall be playing the part of a sorceress in the film. Pleasantly surprised, aren’t you?
Watch the teasers below to know more!
The movies is a 50 million dollar international production based on a Chinese bestseller and has also been selected recently to showcase at the ‘2016 Cannes Film Festival‘. Mallika Sherawat who is a regular at the festival is currently in French Riviera promoting the film with director Lee and Chinese actor Jing Boran amongst others.
The action adventure flick ‘Time Raiders‘ tells the tale of Wu Xie (Luhan) who is an antique shop owner with a family history of tomb raiders. While he delves into his family trade he finds lost treasures of the Warring States as well as the answers to the tragedies of his family’s past. With the help of his grandfather Zhang Qiling‘s (Jing Boran) notes and his team, Wu Xie sets out to find the lost treasures as well as the people responsible for the extermination of his family.
The storyline and trailers are already looking quite intriguing, but what we look forward to most is Luhan’s scenes with Mallika in the film. Well, as Luhan is playing the lead role and Mallika is playing a sorceress in the film we do expect to watch them on the big screen together. Would they have any scenes together? Guess we’ll have to wait a bit for that.
With two Chinese-Bollywood crossover films having already happened, this year is already looking quite good for fans. Hopefully we will get to see more Indian collaboration projects with our favourite K-Pop idols.
As a bonus, check out some stills from the movie below!
‘Time Raiders‘ is expected to release in July 2016 in China. Are you excited about the new movie?
