Eric Tsang Chi Wai took part in the Jay Chou (Chow Kit Lun) directed new film THE ROOFTOP and played a Chinese medicine clinic boss Lord Bo. Chow Kit Lun wrote a song for him to perform, singing 39 words in 10 seconds. Chi Wai joked that it was quite a bother because Chow Kit Lun kept saying that he was "half a beat behind". This time he did not accommodate him and loosen his demand on music. Finally the recording took half a day to complete. He felt that Chow Kit Lun was still not 100% satisfied with his performance.
In the film he and Taiwan comedy artist "Na Dou" played father and son. They did not resemble each other at all. Actually Chi Wai's daughter Bowie Tsang Bo Yi pulled the string. Once she made the suggestion to Chow Kit Lun on a flight, finally Chow Kit Lun during casting truly pulled them together for the collaboration. Chi Wai joked that when he saw Na Dou, he felt that he had to go to Korea for plastic surgery and make himself uglier in order to match him. THE ROOFTOP performed ideally at the Mainland box office. As of two days ago it was heading toward 120 million RMB.
