Indians are surely having the time of their lives as one by one, several Hollywood celebrities are paving way to our city! The latest celeb to be witnessing the grand Indian welcome is none other than King of Kung Fu, Jackie Chan! The actor landed here in Mumbai and he was welcomed in the traditional Atithi Devo Bhava manner. There were garlands, paparazzi and Jackie leaving the airport staff in a tizzy. Chan was accompanied by Sonu Sood. With their upcoming film, Kung Fu Yoga, all set to release, the actor decided to visit India and promote the same. You see, the film does star a majority of Indian actors like Sonu, Disha Patani and Amyra Dastur. Without a doubt the promotions would be grand in India. The trailer of the film created quite a riot with its funny antiques and classic Chan’s action stunts. You can’t expect anything less from the martial arts master!
Now here’s something strikingly similar we noticed with the airport pics of Jackie and Sonu with Vin Diesel and Deepika Padukone. As you folks remember, the first time Vin visited India to promote xXx: Return of Xander Cage, he had a grand welcome with band, bajaa and performances. Similarly, even for Jackie’s visit, he was welcomed in the cultural style by the team. Accompanying him was Sonu. We found three similarities with the way both Vin and Jackie were welcomed.
The first one being the traditional welcome that both the actors received from the Indian crowd. That’s a given considering how we value our traditions, we would obviously follow the same norms when welcoming a guest.
The second common thread between Vin and Jackie’s welcome is how they were both accompanied by their co-stars. While DP was right by Vin’s side, even Sonu made sure that he’ll walk right by his co-star Jackie’s side and lead the way for him. Once again, its obvious that someone from the film fraternity, especially a co-star from India would accompany the actor as they enter unfamiliar zone.

The third similarity is something that will intrigue you. Check out Sonu Sood’s pants. It’s quite similar to Deepika’s Phillip Plein leggings, don’t you think? Atleast the way the prints have been placed on Sonu’s denims have an uncanny resemblance to Padukone’s pants. Coincidental yet intriguing, don’t you think?
Sonu Sood’s style check –
This year, we’ll be seeing a lot of international movie debuts like Sonu Sood, Disha Patani, Amyra Dastur and Priyanka Chopra. You see, so far we were only talking about how Priyanka and Deepika would be having a face off at the Hollywood front. However, if you think about it, even these three stars from Kung Fu Yoga are all set to enthral the audience. Earlier we had reported how Jackie is visiting India to meet Salman Khan. There were also reports stating that the actor had an intimate dinner with the superstar. Looks like Khan’s ties with stars are quite strong. Anyway, the film is slated to release in the first week of February and the trailer has been way too entertaining to excite fans.
