Kazakh singer Dimash Kudaibergen says on his Chinese micro blog that he fell in love with China because of Jackie Chan's action films. Now, his compatriots will get to see the legend again on the big screen.

From June 7 to 18, the 2017 Kazakhstan's Chinese Film Exhibition will be held in the country's capital, Astana. Six feature-length movies, including Chan's thriller Kung Fu Yoga, will be screened at the event, the first of its kind. Chan will also be there, according to the organizers.

In Kung Fu Yoga, a tale about locating a lost treasure, Chan displays his trademark blend of dazzling stunts and comedy.

The exhibition of Chinese cinema backed by the movie bureau of the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television, and sponsored by the China Film Group Corp, the Chinese FilmLiterature Association and the Beijing-based studio Great Heroes, is part of Kazakhstan's Expo 2017, which runs from June 10 to Sept 10.

Jiao Hongfen, president of the China Film Group Corp, says the exhibition is a window to show modern China and its diverse culture to Kazakhstan.
