Actor Jackie Chan has petitioned Chinese government officials to end the era of heavy censorship in his homeland.

The Rush Hour star joined director Feng Xiaogang to make a plea on behalf of the parliament advisory board Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference's (Cppcc).

He says, "I know there's a risk to saying this, but I don't care now, because it seems normal that I speak inappropriately. If a movie is heavily censored, cutting all the sharp edges and corners, its box-office performance will suffer drastically.

"I have a couple of director friends (who went) bankrupt because of poor box-office results. Last year, China box office earnings... (were in the billions) from domestic movies. Within five to six years, China will be the biggest market. However, if Chinese films don't take marketisation seriously, it will hardly have the chance to surpass Hollywood."
