The new Jackie Chan-Sonu Sood starrer Kung Fu Yoga, an Indo-Chinese co-production (hence the mixed title denoting Chinese martial arts and Indian self-discipline exercise) was viewed by the CBFC on Wednesday and was granted a clean chit.
“The CBFC made one verbal cut regarding a remark pertaining to Buddhism, and didn’t touch a single shot in the film. They granted Kung Fu Yoga a ‘UA’ certification on Wednesday and agreed to view the film in other languages two days later,” says a source.
Praising the film and its Indian producer-actor Sonu Sood, Pahlaj Nihlani says, “At a time when corporate houses have taken over our movie business it is commendable that Sonu has brought this big Jackie Chan film to Indian all on his own. It’s a fun film, clean and enjoyable. Jackie Chan already has a huge fan following in India. But Sonu will have new fans in China after the film releases. We saw no reason to cut anything.”
Kung Fu Yoga is an innovative adventure blockbuster directed by renowned Hong Kong director Stanley Tong. Its cast includes international superstar Jackie Chan, popular actor Aarif Rahman, rising talent Lay Zhang, Bollywood stars Sonu Sood, Disha Patani and Amyra Dastur, veteran actors Eric Tsang and Zhang Guoli, and yoga master Mu Qimiya.
