Jackie Chan taught me how to stay grounded, says Sonu Sood
New Delhi, Dec 27 (IANS) Actor Sonu Sood says working with legendary actor Jackie Chan taught him about the importance of staying grounded after becoming successful.
“The biggest learning that I got after working with Jackie Chan is that no matter what you achieve in life, you have to be grounded and connected to your roots always,” Sonu told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
Sonu will soon be seen sharing screen space with Chan, who received an honorary Oscar for his career achievements earlier this year — in the upcoming Sino-Indian film “Kung Fu Yoga”.
“Kung Fu Yoga” is a part of the three-film agreement signed between the two countries during Chinese President Xi Jinping’s past visit to India.
The film, which is directed by Stanley Tong, also stars actress Amyra Dastur. Hindi film stars have reportedly performed some adrenaline-pumping action sequences for the movie, which was partly shot in India.
There is a lot of buzz about the film before its release. But Sonu is not nervous.
“No, it (all the attention) doesn’t add pressure. I think it is high time that all our hard work comes in front of the audience. They need to see it,” he added.
With “Kung Fu Yoga” slated to release in February next year, the “Tutak Tutak Tutiya” star says he is excited about the film and is sure that people will love it.
