Aamir Khan and Jackie Chan had initially come together for an Indo-China film, Kung Fu Yoga but Aamir had to cop out, owing to his Dangal commitment and not much was heard about the project after that. Tiger Shroff stepped into Aamir's shoes for Kung Fu Yoga. Aamir is very fond of Tiger and that's why he suggested his name for the film. Khan had also launched the trailer of his debut film Heropanti.

Tiger said, "Yes, the makers had come all the way from China to meet me and we discussed the project. I am really excited about it. We are very keen to work with each other. But I am shooting two films at the moment. So, if I can sort out the dates, everything is a green light. They want to start sometime in September which will be a little difficult for me. I will shoot for either Sajid sir's Baaghi or Remo sir's Flying Jat that time. Depends on who my dates are allotted to."
