Alibaba’s founder, the richest man in China Jack Ma – will make his big-screen debut alongside action stars Jet Li, Donnie Yen in a Kung fu movie to be released on 11th November. The movie name is Gong Shou Dao, or (The Art of Attack and Defence) and will be released on Chinese ‘Singles Day’. The story revolves around promotion of Tai Chi, a traditional Chinese martial art that Jack has pursued for decades.
The movie announcement came in as a huge surprise for everyone but wait, this is not all. Jack has also featured in a duet with Faye Wong for his upcoming movie. We rate it as “Not a bad attempt at all”.
Jack Ma is reported to be a big fan of Faye Wong. Last year, Ma, 53, paid CNY160 million to Wong, 48, to stage a concert in Shanghai in late 2016.
Jack’s Love for dance and music is long known. He appeared in Michael Jackson’s gear and danced at the Alibaba’s Annual function in 2016. Watch Jack in action.
We are looking forward to the trailer of the movie and will post it as soon as it is public.
