The Andy Lau Tak Wa starred new film yesterday held a promotion. In the film he played a farmer who was looking for his son for 15 years. The event arranged for two actors to played Wa Jai's scenes from the film. Wa Jai said that he put a lot of effort into transforming himself into the farmer look in the film, as he hoped to completely abandon his past handsome image. He said, "I asked the director and the cinematographer to remind him, when I rode the motorcycle in the film I had to abandon the shadow from A MOMENT OF ROMANCE (TIN YEUK YAU CHING)." The serious Wa Jai even borrowed his father's jacket for his costume.
Because of the extremely realistic costume, when Wa Jai was shooting in secret on the streets no one recognized that he was Lau Tak Wa. Wa Jai joked with the host, "No one knew I was Lau Tak Wa, which was truly somewhat disappointing. I am obviously a big star."
At the event, the event arranged for many boys and their fathers to pair up for games. As the children got on stage, Wa Jai immediately went next to the boys and said that he really liked children. He also said that when he played a father after becoming a father, the audience had an easier time accepting him. Before he became a father, he needed a lot of imagination to play a father.
Wa Jai pointed out that the Vicki Zhao Wei starred DEAREST also fought against kidnapping like his film. He said, "DEAREST is more tearjerking and about the first half of kidnapping. Mine can be seen as DEAREST's sequel." Wa Jai said that the film performed well in the Mainland, but the production was not expensive. The most expensive was his salary. However he invested his salary into 1/3 of the film.
Speaking of the Hong Kong Film Award next month, Wa Jai said, "I pick Zhao Wei. Ah Sa (Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin) made a breakthrough and deserved an encouragement. As for Best Actor, I of course support Ching Wan with the last name Lau."
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Heung Wa Keung earlier said that they would never hire Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi again. Wa Jai said that he no longer remembered the rumor of Pak Chi upsetting him when they made RUNNING ON KARMA (DAI JET LO). As for Heung's comments, he said, "Both parties have expressed themselves, no one should chime in and make matter worse."
