“The whole dinner thing was very special. Everyone was so emotional,” Sonu said in a statement. “Friendship is one thing which can’t be put in words. It stays with you. It really made me emotional,” he added.

Sonu took to Instagram to share images from the dinner. He captioned the post, “Some bonds are for life. Thank you bro Jackie Chan and Stanley Tong for the lovely dinner. Was great catching up again after so long. Love you always .. And yes all set for Kung Fu Yoga 2.”

According to a source, Sonu is very close to Chan and his family. “When they got to know about Sonu being in Dubai, they wrapped up the shoot early to host an exclusive dinner for him in an Italian restaurant.

“They also discussed Kung Fu Yoga 2, which Stanley is already writing. After wrapping up Vanguard, they are planning to start the sequel which will see Jackie and Sonu collaborate again,” the source added.
