Actor Fatima Sana Shaikh recently met action superstar Jackie Chan in China. The duo met at the sidelines of an event called Jackie Chan International Action Movie Week where Fatima was being awarded for her action stunts in Thugs of Hindostan.

Fatima took to her Instagram account and posted photos from the event. “This is the best moment of my life! It’s an absolute honor to receive this award from @jackiechan @adrienbrody I think i will have to do an action movie every year. Just so that I get a chance to meet them. #jackiechanactionmovieweek #china #thugsofhindostan,” the actor wrote.

The fifth Jackie Chan International Action Film Week was held in Datong, north China’s Shanxi Province.

“Action filmmakers work very hard, they often face injuries, even life-threatening, but they are always heroes behind-the-scenes. The attention and recognition for them in the industry and international film festivals are far from enough. The action film week is to recognize the world’s filmmakers who have made outstanding contributions to action films and speak for them,” Jackie Chan said at the press conference held earlier this year.

Thugs of Hindostan released in China earlier this year. The action film, which was not received well at the Indian box office, failed to impress the Chinese audience as well. This was Aamir Khan’s first film that failed to strike a chord with the Chinese audience. Earlier, films such as Dangal and Secret Superstar were received very well in the country.
