Jack Ma may be China's most recognizable billionaire. Part of that is due to his incredible wealth. He only fell recently to China Evergrande's founder Xu Jiayin, whose worth has skyrocketed because of the country's explosive property market.
Ma is also in the limelight because of his very public crusade to foster global trade. But most notably The Founder of Alibaba (BABA - Get Report) has been in the news because of a strange drive to perform. During this year's Alibaba Anniversary Gala Jack Ma took to the stage in a jeweled mask and danced for his entire staff to Michael Jackson's Billie Jean. More recently Ma flexed his Karaoke chops by joining popular crooner Li Jian on stage at a music festival. He sang a couple of songs with Jian and then did a few solo songs. In all he was on stage for about 15 minutes.
Finally with the Help of Jet Li, Jack Ma has broken into the world of Kung Fu Film making. Gong Shou Dao was released on November 11th. The 22 minute short film was produced by Li, Directed by Wen Zhang and stars Ma himself. Donnie Yen, Wu Jing and Tony Jaa are also featured.
You can watch the full film with subtitles on Jet Li's Facebook Page.
