Jackie Chan and Indian super-star Rajinikanth starring in the same movie? Would you term it a dream cast? Well may be, but it is coming true!
International actors Jackie Chan, Rajinikanth and Sonam Kapoor will be teaming up for a blockbuster Malaysian production, “The Chini Saga,” which will revolve around the legend of the dragon from Chini Lake, Padang, Cinema Online reported. “I am not just making this up. The matter of making contact with popular actors like Jackie Chan, Rajinikanth and Sonam Kapoor has all been done. As this film is planned to be screened in the actors’ home countries, we would need their appearance in the film,” producer Mohd Rafeezi Mohd Zin akaPveezi Zain was quoted by Sinar Harian as saying. According to Pveezi, apart from international stars the film would also involve local Malaysian actors.
The Chini Saga was first announced four years ago, but it was delayed due to insufficient funds, as it needed RM20 million to move forward.
Pveezi said that his camp has managed to collect the funds and that the filming would commence in July. Pveezi revealed that both renowned actors had reportedly signed a contract to star in the said film.
It will be filmed in Norway, India, Indonesia, Thailand and China, and will mostly feature computer-generated imagery (CGI). It will also be mostly in English, as it is intended to be released in theaters across Malaysia, Europe and China, according to Yibada.
