Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin and Chapman To Man Jat in the film THE MIDAS TOUCH (CHIU CUP GAING LEI YUN) on and off screen were very chatty. Actually Ah Jat revealed that he and Ah Sa became enemies before. Back then Ah Sa was with Ronald Cheng Chung Kei. Once Ah Jat and Cheng Chung Ki were plastered from drinking. Ah Sa called to urge Cheng Chung Kei to go home. Ah Jat grabbed the phone and yelled, "Bitch! You don't have to call, Cheng Chung Kei won't be coming home tonight!" Ah Sa thus hated Ah Jat and would pretend not to see him in the public. When Ah Jat signed with Emperor, she directly asked Mani Fok Man Hei why she would sign someone like this? Ah Jat later became a Buddhist and became more forgiving, as he learned that rivalry were better resolved than made. Once he and Ah Sa were on the same flight. He apologized to her and was forgiven, they even became friends.
In THE MIDAS TOUCH they both played managers. Did they use guest star manager Fok Man Hei as a role model? Ah Sa said that after years with Mani, she would unknowingly display her aura. Ah Jat daringly criticized Mani's acting in the film as very rotten and asked her not to smile too much. Yet she kept smiling and thus had many bad takes. Ah Jat said that in reality Mani was not mean to artists but to employees. Once he returned to Emperor and heard Mani roaring at her subordinates in a room. He remembered to praise Mani's might and ability to multitask. She not only had to manager over 30 artists but also deal with the outside. Her phone just kept ringing nonstop.
