Mumbai: Katrina Kaif had reportedly declined a film opposite Kung fu superstar Jackie Chan citing date issues. But her loss seems to have become someone else’s gain! Ileana D’Cruz is the lucky girl to have bagged the role.
Ileana, who is a popular name down south, made her Bollywood debut opposite Ranbir Kapoor in Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Barfi!’. She also featured in ‘Main Tera Hero’, ‘Phata Poster Nikla Hero’ and ‘Happy Ending’.
The international project titled ‘Kung fu Yoga’ also stars Bollywood actor Sonu Sood.
Directed by Stanley Tong, ‘Kung Fu Yoga’ is reportedly an out-and-out action movie.
The film will be shot in Dubai, Beijing and India.
