Chinese actor Jackie Chan, who has also appeared in successful Hollywood films such as Who Am I? (1998) and The Karate Kid (2010), is widely popular. He is particularly known for performing his own stunts. It is also said that there is hardly any part in his body that hasn’t been treated for injuries.

His action and pursuit for perfection have fetched him feats that are no less than indomitable!

He set his debut Guinness record for most number of takes for a scene as a director. The movie was Dragon Lord (1982), in which he took 2,900 takes for a single 10-minute scene!

Through his 2012 film Chinese Zodiac, Jackie Chan added two more Guinness records to his name – for most stunts by a living actor and for most credits in a single movie. He received credits under writer, director, lead actor , producer, executive producer, cinematographer, art director, unit production manager, catering coordinator, stunt coordinator, gaffer, composer, theme tune vocalist, props and stuntman, in the movie.

Jackie Chan was born on April 7, 1954, in British Hong Kong.
