The "Strongest in the Universe" Donnie Yen Chi Tan spoke about his low point on the TVB program TELLING MARIA. "Between 1996 and 1997 I started a company and directed. The financial storm economy was very poor, I borrowed from loan sharks and even needed the producer to pay for my meals. I can say it was the lowest point. The second film due to funding couldn't be completed, I had to find a garbage chamber for a shoot location." Yen Chi Tan also said that after years in film his body already suffered a lot of damage. He was almost blinded four times. While working on IP MAN, he had about 8 stitches after Louis Fan Siu Wong's axe cut the corner of his eye.
