Jackie Chan's new film KUNG FU YOGA was rumored to have halted production after the Indian film company pulled its funding, but actually the production continued. Jackie Chan yesterday revealed, "The production didn't stop, no matter who pulls their funding it wouldn't be affected. Instead many companies are fighting to invest. I now have several films on hand. Aside from CHINESE, I also have to go to Shandong for RAILROAD TIGER and in December I will have to fly to England to continue production on KUNG FU YOGA."
The Mainland film company that invested in KUNG said that the Indian company did not participate in the film in whole. "They didn't invest any money, so the so-called funding pull didn't exist." The film company also said that after the production, no less than 1/3 of the film will be about India.
Artist Aarif Rahman (Lee Chi Ting) who was a part of the film yesterday posted production photos from Dubai. The group gathered on the desert and posed for a group photo to prove that the rumor has not affected production. Lee Chi Ting often took selfies around the beautiful cars and enjoyed the production process. He said that after completing the Dubai shoot he missed everyone very much. "Goodbye Dubai! Thank you Director Tong (Stanley Tong Kwai Lai) and Jackie Chan for your care! I miss you! I miss new friends there even more! Fighting brother!"
