Jackie Chan has always supported the Hong Kong film industry. Earlier he guest starred in the Nicholas Tse Ting Fung and Shawn Yue Man Lok starred Emperor Motion Picture AS THE LIGHT GOES OUT (GAU FOR YING HUNG) for a "lai see price". Although he only guest starred, Jackie Chan did not slack off at all. On the day of the shoot, he even attentively listened to director Derek Kwok Chi Kin's arrangement. Although the director gave some tongue twisting lines to Jackie Chan and inevitably put him in bad takes, with his experience he picked them up very quickly. Later they shot from different angles, he had to say the lines more than a dozen times and did not slip up once. During the evacuation scene, one extra fell. Jackie Chan immediately helped him up with his quick reflexes. Director Kwok Chi Kin stated that because the fire service team needed a firefighter recruitment film in the film, he hoped to find an artist of a certain caliber to perform. Finally Emperor boss Albert Yeung Sau Sing asked Jackie Chan!

In addition, the Jackie Chan starred film POLICE STORY 2013 was released in the Mainland. The first day box office exceeded 65 million and broke 100 million in two days. Jackie Chan said that he was done with the fighting for box office era. Jackie Chan instead hoped that the POLICE STORY series would continue with successors like Jaycee Chan (Fong Cho Ming) and Nicholas Tse Ting Fung. Earlier, Jet Li (Lee Nin Kit) revealed that he had hyperthyroidism and needed long term medication treatment that prevented him from normal exercises. Jackie Chan said, "I believe our generation will have this problem, but sometimes you misunderstand. With some move, we are faster than you but we are very humble."
