Bollywood actor Sonu Sood, who has signed on to play a key role in a Jackie Chan-starrer Indo-Chinese production “Kung Fu Yoga”, hopes to take the flavours of India’s ‘paranthe’ to the Chinese Kung Fu star.
“Kung Fu Yoga” is part of the three-film agreement signed between the two countries during Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to India last year.
Directed by Stanley Tong, the action comedy film is currently being shot in Dubai. It will also be shot in Beijing and later in India.
Sonu’s “Happy New Year” director Farah Khan shared her excitement on Twitter over the news.
Her post read: “So happy for Jackie Chan who is starring with my friend @SonuSood in ‘Kung Fu Yoga’! Truly Karate meets paranthe!.”
Sonu gave her a witty response and said that it’s possible that Chan gets addicted to ‘paranthe’.
“Hahaha Farah. Don’t be surprised if he gets addicted to paranthe…then you have to make for us. Get ready,” Sonu quipped.
The “Dabanng” actor had been dropping hints about his foreign project on the micro-blogging site for quite a while, starting with a tweet: “….and the journey begins…will keep u posted!! Have a great day.”
Sonu seems to be working hard for his role with the action star.
He also shared an image in which he is seen engrossed in a workout session.
“Behind me is INFINITE #Power, Before me is ENDLESS #Possibility..N around me is ENDLESS #Opportunity #DedicationMyKey”.
The star has already garnered appreciation from his Chinese co-star, actress Shang Yuxian, who shared an image with him on Twitter and wrote: “Hi guys! Great working with my co-star @SonuSood.”
Sonu, on his part, responded by saying: “It’s been a real pleasure. Keep shining always Ceci!”
