The new Jackie Chan-Sonu Sood starrer Kung Fu Yoga, an Indo-Chinese co-production (hence the mixed title denoting Chinese martial arts and Indian self-discipline exercise) was viewed by the CBFC on Wednesday and was granted a clean chit.
“The CBFC made one verbal cut regarding a remark pertaining to Buddhism, and didn’t touch a single shot in the film. They granted Kung Fu Yoga a ‘UA’ certification on Wednesday and agreed to view the film in other languages two days later,” says a source.
Praising the film and its Indian producer-actor Sonu Sood, Pahlaj Nihlani says, “At a time when corporate houses have taken over our movie business it is commendable that Sonu has brought this big Jackie Chan film to Indian all on his own. It’s a fun film, clean and enjoyable. Jackie Chan already has a huge fan following in India. But Sonu will have new fans in China after the film releases. We saw no reason to cut anything."
