New film PARADOX (TAM LONG) already finished its over three months long shoot in Thailand and Hong Kong. Two nights ago on the Lunar 7th, People Day, a wrap banquet was held as the team celebrated together. Aside from the investors, producer Paco Wong, director Wilson Yip Wai Shun, actors Louis Koo Tin Lok, Wu Yue, Chris Collins, Gordon Lam Ka Tung, Ken Low Wai Kwong, Jacky Cai Jie and Hanna Chan attended. Goo Jai gave away over HK$ 50,000 cash to the team, but he gave up on using red envelopes and directly gave away the paper currency as he became the new and cool "environment friendly fortune god"!
At the wrap banquet, producer Paco Wong not only thanked the team for their hard work on the film PARADOX but also praised lead actor Koo Tin Lok. He even "promoted" him and called him Lord Koo. "Thank you to the actors for their life risking performance, especially to Lord Koo for the unprecedented performance this time. I can't reveal too much, everyone will have to go to the moves. Also Big Brother (Sammo) Hung Kam Bo, his team is truly top notch. I also after SPL (SAT POR LONG) in 2004 had to wait 12 years to be able to work with him again."
In the film Goo Jai not only had a lot of action scenes that he personally performed but also had a big selling point with his relationship with his missing daughter. Giving his all to the film, at the wrap banquet Goo Jai also turned into fortune god. He had a thick stack of HK$ 500 bills and personally went to each table to give them away. Even investors and actors got some. He even joked, "I am not putting the money into red envelopes, direct distribution is both environmentally friendly and doesn't require to open anything." The wrap banquet had 9 tables. Goo Jai gave away a rough estimate of HK$ 50,000 cash, absolutely joy to the world.
Goo Jai gave away money, PARADOX's other lead actor Wu Yue gave away blessings. He personally wrote some couplet banners to give away to everyone. Paco Wong even praised Wu Yue for not only able to fight but also great at calligraphy. He absolutely was both tough and tender. As for another outstanding fighter in PARADOX, Chris Collins also brought his six year old son to experience the New Year atmosphere.
The event had a lucky cash drawing that originally gave away HK$ 100,000, but the amount kept growing. Finally almost HK$ 400,000 was given away. The biggest credit had to go to Lam Ka Tung. As the host he kept asking the investors to add more money in order for everyone of the behind the scene team to get some money. Director Yip Wai Shun, Lam Ka Tung, Cai Jie all generously gave. Goo Jai alone not only gave over HK$ 50,000 cash in lai see but also HK$ 40,000 for the lucky drawing. The prizes ranged from HK$ 500 to 20,000 as everyone had a fat Year of the Rooster!
