Though they couldn’t meet, Jackie Chan gifted Yami Gautam a traditional shawl while she was in Beijing to promote Kaabil’s release in China.
Actress Yami Gautam received a special gift — a traditional shawl — from legend Jackie Chan during the promotions of her film ‘Kaabil’ in China. She was thrilled at this special gesture from an international icon.
“I was surprised when I heard that Mr Chan had sent across a gift for me. I couldn`t meet him as I was still in India then shooting for ‘Bala’. But when I made it to Beijing, I was handed over a parcel from him. It was such a kind gesture from his end to think of sending me a thoughtful gift. As kids, we have grown up seeing his movies and I personally have been a fan of his work. He’s such an icon and a legend globally and I do hope to meet him in person soon,” Yami said in a statement.
Hrithik and Yami were in Beijing last month for the promotion of their film Kaabil. The duo received superb response from the audience. While Hrithik had met Chan, and posted photographs of their meeting on his social media accounts, Yami couldn’t make due to her busy schedule.
Released last week, Kaabil failed to impress the moviegoers in China. It failed big time and has so far earned just 116 crores in six days.
On the work front, Yami will be next seen in Bala which also stars Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar. Hrithik, meanwhile, is busy with the promotion of Vikas Bahl’s Super 30 slated for 12 July 2019 release.
