Jackie Making News in India
Not a day goes by when Jackie's name isn't mentioned in a news source out of India. Jackie's choice of India as a location for his film, The Myth, has the people of that country very excited. They foresee a future for India as a great spot for filmmakers to set up their cameras. Just by virtue of appearing in Jackie's movie, Mallika Sherawat and Kerala's martial arts expert G. Satyanarayanan have become major attention-getters in their native country.

Jackie Makes News Picking Up Trash!
While filming in India, Jackie noticed that someone had thrown some garbage on the ground and he promptly picked it up.

New Police Story is Still #1 at Box Office
Jackie should be very proud of his accomplishment with his latest movie. It has remained at the top of the box office since it opened last week. New Police Story is a different kind of movie for Jackie. It shows off his acting talents as well as his action talents. This movie is serious and dark; therefore it is not meant for Jackie's very young fans. Congratulations to everyone involved in the movie!
