International superstar Jackie Chan starred Chinese Indian new film KUNG FU YOGA was one of the three China and India film co-productions, has already started production last month in Dubai and will shoot in Iceland. However, according to an American report yesterday one of the investors Viacom18 Media Pvt. Ltd. announced that it will pull its investment. The company's Gayatri Gulati said, "We have cancelled the collaboration because we cannot agree to their terms." The pull out may leave the KUNG production in limbo. Reportedly during casting they had a difference of opinion over how well know the characters were. In addition the Indian film companies were upset that the Chinese film companies held a tight grip on the films.
Even so, with Jackie Chan's years of experience and connections and the KUNG was one of the China and Indian contract projects. The film probably will not stop production. However its original release date of summer next year may have to be postponed to Christmas.
