Earlier there were reports doing rounds that action choreographer Siva widely known as Stunt Siva, who appeared in Kamal Haasan's Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu, has taken to direction with his debut movie titled as Karate Kaaran.
The latest we hear from the sources close to the movie is that Asia's most popular star, Jackie Chan, has sent across his warm wishes to the team of Karate Kaaran.
What does Jackie Chan has to do with stunt Siva's debut movie you might ask, well, as it turns out, Karate Karan is the official remake of Jackie Chan's 2010 movie, The Karate Kid.
Stunt Siva has revealed that he had informed Jackie Chan about the remake to which the Hollywood actor has sent across his congratulations to the entire team.
"Jackie Chan is a friend of mine and he wished us good luck when we informed him that we are going to remake The Karate Kid. The script had to undergo certain changes so that Tamil audience can relate to it", said Siva.
Karate Karan will star Siva's entire family as his sons Kevin and Stephen are said to play the lead roles while Jackie Chan's role in the original will be played by his wife Laani, who is a professional in martial arts.
Siva has also promised that the movie will not be a disappointment as it will be a treat to the family audience. Will Karate Karan manage to attract the kind of response The Karate Kid enjoyed? Let's wait for the movie's release and hope for the best.
