One Bollywood actor seemed to have attracted Jackie Chan's attention, but it wasn't for his acting.

As reported on First Post, the action superstar reportedly asked to meet with Bollywood actor Tiger Shroff, son of big star Jackie Shroff, following his recent statement to the media that Kung Fu may have originated from India.

In an earlier interview, Tiger stated that there are conflicting opinions in regard to whether the Chinese martial arts actually originated from the teachings of an Indian Buddhist monk, Bodhidharma, who arrived in China from India in the 6th century. However, there is one certain fact to the story, he said.

"He most definitely brought a form of martial arts with him, most likely Kalaripayattu, and transformed the newly-formed Shaolin temple and the Buddhist monks settled there into dedicating themselves to Kung Fu and becoming a warrior elite whose fame spread throughout China and then all over the world," said Shroff.

An insider stated that Jackie, who made a career out of acting and producing Kung Fu-related films, happened to read the reports and wanted to meet Shroff to hear more about his previous statement.

The actor reportedly has also asked his people to do some research about the topic to ensure he has the correct facts.
