Andy Lau Tak Wa lately has been working on Sammo Hung Kam Bo's film LO WAI BING in Russia. He joked that he only had two or three fight scenes in his guest starring role. He left the heavyweight fight scenes for the young Big Brother Hung Kam Bo. Wa Jai joked, "In the past I often played scenes in which I got beaten up, almost dying in all of them. I have counted, in my past films I have died in over 100 of them."
Speaking of earlier Mrs. Charles Heung Wa Keung's claim that Wa Jai said Stephen Chow Sing Chi was not a friend. Wa Jai earlier not only clarified but also admitted that he was a Sing Yeh fan, since he has seen almost every one of his films 20 to 30 times.
Wa Jai said, "When there is a difference in the content, I would come out and talk about it for everyone to know the real situation. I haven't worked with Sing Yeh in a long time. The last time was already TRICKY BRAINS. I felt that let them resolve the matter themselves, we shouldn't join in on this subject. Let's wait for them to think clearly for real before we talk more about it."
Wa Jai has produced many films in the past. He felt that he has always been learning. Although I hope to be able to direct one day, I discover that being a director is really too hard."

The Teddy Chan Tak Sum directed film KUNG FU JUNGLE (YUT GOR YUN DIK MO LUM) starred Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Charlie Yeung Choi Nei,Wang Baoqiang and Bai Bing. In the film Wang Baoqiang personally drove a speed boat and began a chase with the Choi Nei led Hong Kong police in Tai O.
Wang Baoqiang said, this time this character differed from his past ones. He was not considered a bad guy, only his personal ideas, methods and psychology are a little twisted. He completely lived in the martial art wold. During the chase scene, he flew on the water on a speed boat and looked vicious.
The team spent five days to shoot in Tai O. It not only had to handle a lot of dangerous scenes but also many tourists, greatly adding the difficulty of the shoot. Chan Tak Sum said, "As soon as I got into the business, when I was a production assistant, assistant director, planner and organizer, I have worked with many action directors. I have always liked Hong Kong kung fu films myself, so I really wanted through this chance to salute all the kung fu film elders. Thus no matter how difficult, this chase scene had to be shot in Hong Kong."
Wang Baoqiang was able to personally drive the speed boat, which had him beyond excited. "It was especially fun and exciting! The only thing I wasn't used to was the salty stench at the end of the day after work." Wang Baoqiang put a lot of effort into this character and ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Jiro Wang uploaded a photo with the word 'anger' over his face after Aaron Yan said they are 'no longer friends'
Taiwanese singer Aaron Yan recently revealed in an interview that he is 'no longer friends' with former Fahrenheit members Jiro Wang and Calvin Chen, and only kept in touch with Wu Chun.
Following that, Jiro uploaded a topless photo of himself on Instagram with the word 'anger' over his face with the caption: 'My current mood! Anger!'
Although the actor-singer did not state the reason, netizens suspect he was responding to Aaron's statement. Fans left encouraging comments for him to stay strong for his dreams.
Aaron's revelation sparked heated arguments among Fahrenheit fans as they felt he was trying to draw the line between himself and the other three members.
He clarified on Facebook last Saturday (Sept 20): 'Will you continue banging on a wall after getting hurt from knocking on it for years? All emotional ties, including family, romance, friendship or even relationships with your pets, need to be managed and maintained. If you are the only one taking initiative, it would be like banging on a wall.'
The heated exchanges continued and Aaron further posted: 'Who wants to grow up without being able to say the truth? It is because one can finally speak the truth and bear the consequences that one has finally grown.'

The singer's manager refuted claims that he had gone for a wedding photoshoot in Shanghai
Wedding details for Mandopop superstar Jay Chou and rumoured girlfriend Hannah Quinlivan have been garnering wide media attention ever since the singer promised to get married by next January.
Recently, Jay was said to have gone for a wedding photoshoot in Shanghai, and offered the studio a lump sum of RMB$2 million (approximately S$410,000) to promote the photos.
Employees of the studio had previously claimed that the 35-year-old approached them first and offered them the money but these rumours have been refuted by his manager. His record label, JVR Music, will not hesitate to take legal actions if necessary, they said.
'Our company did not, and will not, offer any money to wedding photo studios to promote Jay Chou's wedding. We will take legal actions against the false statements in news reports by employees of the studio,' said JVR Music in an official statement released to the media.
It is believed that Jay intends to hold his wedding by the sea but he will focus on album preparations first as it 'cannot drag on further'. Although he also added that the wedding 'cannot drag on further' as well, Hannah revealed that he has yet to propose.

With the TVB Awards looming in the corner, last year's TV Queen hopeful Linda Chung has prepared herself physically and mentally to compete for the coveted title.
As reported on On CC News, the actress, who has been a hot contender for the title since last year, reportedly will have a bigger chance this time around through her leading role as a female pharmacist in "All That is Bitter is Sweet".
Even Linda herself felt that the timing is right, saying, "After working in the industry for ten years, I am confident in myself. It should be the time, but I won't give myself too much pressure."
She also admitted to have gained maturity and the ability to handle pressure after losing the award last year to her "Brother's Keeper" co-star, Kristal Tin.
When told that "Line Walker" star Charmaine Sheh is another favourite to win TV Queen, Linda said that it will be an honour to compete with the actress, as she has admired Charmaine since she first started on TVB.
Meanwhile, the actress revealed that her long-delayed action drama "Tiger Cubs II" will be aired in October.

The veteran actor believes that a 'happy event' would improve his cancer-stricken wife's condition
Veteran Hong Kong actor Felix Wong has reportedly been urging his daughter, actress-model Adrian Wong to get married to improve the luck of his family.
His wife, former actress Leung Kit-Wah, was diagnosed with leukemia late last year and her condition is currently under control with chemotherapy treatment. A devout believer in fengshui, Felix reckons that a 'happy event' would be helpful to her health.
Adrian, who is signed under the same company (HKTV) as her father, has yet to participate in any major project after two years in the industry. The 24-year-old was recently spotted on a date with her boyfriend of three years, Bryan. The couple shopped for three hours before meeting their parents for dinner, where discussion of their wedding allegedly took place.
Sources also revealed that the couple is in a stable relationship, and that Bryan is so well-liked by Felix and Kit-Wah that they treat him like their 'son-in-law'.
When asked if wedding bells are ringing soon for her daughter, Felix suppressed a smile and said: 'Let her make her own decision!'

Hong Kong actress Cecilia Cheung was reportedly affected by her ex-husband, cried while on the phone with her ex-manager Tiffany Chen.
But the 34-year-old, who relocated to Singapore early this year with her sons, Lucas Tse, 7, and Quintus Tse, 4, was seen bringing them out for a meal on Monday. The three even posed for photos under the requests of fans, and she did not seem affected by news of the reconciliation at all.
On the same day, a netizen revealed his conversation with Tiffany and said, 'The reports from Hong Kong are fake, there is no such thing (that Cecilia cried).'
Cecilia's current manager shared that she is currently resting and thanked the public for their concern.
Responding to how Cecilia had blamed Nicholas for not visiting their sons, the actor's manager, Mani Fok, said, 'He is actually working hard to save up for his sons.'
'Speaking as a woman and not Nicholas's manager', Mani felt sad for Cecilia and hopes 'she can let go and understand. When she is happy, her sons benefit as they can grow in a positive environment and she can open her heart for a second love too'.
Insiders revealed that when the celebrity couple divorced in 2011, they had an agreement where Nicholas cannot reveal his new love interest if he finds one within the next five years.
While Cecilia felt that this was for the sake of their sons, others guessed it was to give herself a chance to get back together with Nicholas.
