The trailer of Jackie Chan’s Indo-Sino movie – comedy drama Kung Fu Yoga – has arrived. For the uninitiated, Kung Fu Yoga also features actors Disha Patani, Amyra Dastur and Sonu Sood in significant roles. Yes, Disha, Amyra and Sonu do appear in the trailer but it is the Hong Kong-industry’s biggest superstar who steals the show. The trailer promises that there’s action and there’s comedy but what’s with the ‘yoga’ in the title? Kung Fu Yoga is part of the three-film agreement signed between India and China during Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to India. Directed by Stanley Tong, Kung Fu Yoga has been extensively shot in Jaipur and Iceland.
Kung Fu Yoga features Jackie Chan as a professor of archaeology while Disha’s character is a student of history. Together, they venture on an expedition to discover the Magadha treasure in Tibet. As the trailer begins, a bespectacled Jackie Chan is spotted swishing past the Terracotta Army in the Museum of Xi’an in China. It is followed by an elephant ride in what appears to be Jaipur. Soon, the scene shifts to the icy and rocky terrains of Iceland. While a resplendent Disha Patani sashays down the aisle of a palace and Sonu Sood fights in style, Jackie Chan’s character encounters a number of animals in the trailer. He drives a car with a lion in the backseat, fights off hyenas – there’s also a camel race in the trailer.
