When Shilpa Shetty touched Jackie Chan’s feet
jamuna news desk: Indian actress Shilpa Shetty says she is an ardent fan of international action star Jackie Chan and touched his feet out of respect.
The Chinese actor is now in India with co-stars Sonu Sood and Disha Patani. He was attending a programme with his co-stars where Shilpa Shetty was special guest.
Shilpa Shetty took the centre stage and introduced the star of the evening, Jackie Chan.
It was a very emotional moment for Shilpa when Jackie entered the stage with his arms folded in 'Namaste'. So in return, the actress touched his feet saying, "Being an actress I never had this kind of a fan-girl moment. I am feeling blessed to share the stage with Jackie sir."
“I am not here as Shilpa Shetty the actor or Yoga enthusiast. I am here as an ardent and crazy fan of Jackie Chan, ” Shilpa told reporters here last night at a promotional event of Kung Fu Yoga.
“I believe in life if you think about something from the heart it does manifest. I became an actor due to him. I have never been star struck in my life but only Jackie Chan. (I) Touched his feet out of respect,” she said.
Shilpa introduced the action star to the media last evening. The 41-year-old actress-producer reveals she learnt karate only because of Chan.
“He is a legendary and biggest action star. He is doing action since 56 years and it’s amazing,” she said.
“I used to wait for outtakes. I realised if you want to be a legend put in all the hard work. He made all the difficult stunts look easy due to his hard work,” she added.
