Jackie Chan is a fabulous dancer, says Farah Khan

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Farah Khan, who has choreographed Jackie Chan for the upcoming Sino-Indian film "Kung Fu Yoga", says the legendary actor is a fabulous dancer.

"It was fabulous (choreographing for Chan). He is a fabulous dancer and he picked up the Bollywood moves so easily and he loved doing it," Farah told IANS.

Asked if he showed any interest in starring in a Bollywood film, she quipped: "I don't know if we can afford him. He charges hell of a lot of money. The entire budget would just go to him."

Farah, who is currently judging the ninth season of "Indian Idol" aired on Sony Entertainment Television channel, has even directed hits like "Om Shanti Om", "Main Hoon Na" and "Happy New Year".

So would Farah like to direct Chan?

"I would love to...He is a joy to work with," said Farah, who will be seen judging along with composer Anu Malik and singer Sonu Nigam in "Indian Idol".

"Kung Fu Yoga" is part of the three-film agreement signed between the two countries during Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to India.

The film also stars actress Amyra Dastur and Sonu Sood. It is reported that the Hindi film stars have performed some adrenalin-pumping action sequences for the movie.

Directed by Stanley Tong, the action comedy film has been shot in Dubai, Iceland, Beijing and India.
