Jackie Chan and Fan Bingbing are the main leads of action movie 'Skiptrace'. 

Filming took place at seven locations in three countries.

61-year-old Jackie, who is used to filming action scenes personally, did not use any stunt doubles during filming.

According to Asian E-News Portal, Jackie revealed that he was almost killed during one of the scenes in China.

"I almost died in Guangxi," quipped the action star.

In the scene, Jackie was drifting in a river around 15 metres deep.  The water body was full of uneven stones. 

During filming, Jackie got caught in the river and kept struggling in the water. He tried to get onto a boat but failed.  

Recalled the actor: 

 "I was in a state of panic and very scared."

Fortunately, Jackie managed to get out of danger thereafter.

Fan Bingbing, who also had several dangerous scenes in the film, also admitted that the river scene was the most unforgettable.
