April 7th is the Birthday of the diminutive dynamo Jackie Chan. One can say without any doubt that this action hero who gives you a magical mix of Acrobatic action and rip roaring comedy is the most famous and most loved screen actor on the planet.
Jackie Chan has appeared as a stunt double to the great Bruce Lee in a couple of films but he burst on to the Indian screens with ‘Project A’ in the eighties and walked straight into the hearts of especially Tamil audiences who gave Jackie the equal status of Rajini and Kamal and a hundred days run for every film of his that released like ‘Wheels on Meals’, ‘The Police Story’ series, ‘The Protector’, ‘The Drunken Master’, ‘Armour of God’, ‘Who Am I’, ‘Dragaons Forever’ , ‘Twin Dragons’, ‘Rush Hour’ series and ‘Shangai Noon’ series that come to mind among many.
To entertain you and me some actors walk stylishly, others roll their fingers and a few others throw punch dialogues, but Jackie Chan over the years, has dislocated his pelvis and also broken numerous parts of body including his fingers, toes, nose, both cheekbones, hips, sternum, neck, ankle, ribs and came closest to death filming Armour of God, when he fell from a tree and fractured his skull while rolling down a mountain inside a balloon which sent him into a coma.
IG wishes the Greatest Entertainer on Planet Earth a Happy Birthday and many many more Returns.
