Filming has taken place at the Atlantis Hotel, the Palm, while parts of Downtown Dubai were closed temporarily last weekend in order to shoot a car chase scene. The cast and crew will remain in the emirate until October 30.

Speaking of the arrival of the Jackie Chan movie in the Dubai, Jamal Al Sharif, chairman of Dubai Film and TV Commission and managing director of Dubai Studio City, said: “We are very excited to welcome Jackie Chan and the Kung Fu Yoga production team to Dubai. The UAE is becoming an increasingly popular destination for Hollywood and Bollywood productions, and the filming of Kung Fu Yoga in Dubai is another major boost for our film industry.

“The shooting of large productions here in Dubai has not only facilitated the development of a sustainable local film industry, but has showcased the Emirate’s attractions, lifestyle, locations and culture to a global audience, and truly established the Emirate as a leading international filming hub.” Arabian Business
