Thai princess Ubolratana Rajakanya two nights ago led many Thai artists and officials to attend a Thai film night and promote her film MY BEST BODYGUARD. The film's actors Shawn Yue Man Lok and many directors like Andrew Lau Wai Keung, Teddy Chan Tak Sum, Kwok Siu Kin, Tin Kai Man and Irene Wan Bik Ha attended.
Yue Man Lok felt very honored to be a part of the film and to be able to work with the Thai princess. He expressed that the proceeds from the film will be donated to charity. Yue Man Lok was still shaking from working with the Thai princess. He said, "The princess position in Thailand is very sacred. Civilians who saw her had to bow, even if the ground was full of sharp rocks. The princess was great to me and didn't require me to bow because Hong Kong did not have this culture." Yue Man Lok pointed out that he did not know Thai but the princess' English was great so they were able to communicate. Lok Jai said that the director played a prank on him. On his first day with the princess he had to slap her. Lok Jai said, "I suggested using a double but the director asked me to shoot first and see the result. Before the shoot I truly was worried about hitting too hard and injuring the princess. The princess wasn't worried at all, but people around her were very nervous. In addition all of her bodyguards had guns. The set even had three Black Hawk helicopters. Finally I hit twice and the director used a double to do the dirty work." Lok Jai expressed that the princess originally wanted to dine with the cast, but she was too busy and security would have needed time to prepare so they never had the chance.
Wan Bik Ha was in negotiation for a Thai film. If the screenplay was suitable then she would. Lately she just returned from an ad shoot in Beijing. As for time with her husband, Wan Bik Ha said, "We spent half our time working overseas, but we also have a lot of time to be with each other." As for why she did not invite her husband to visit the set, Wan Bik Ha said, "If he is there, I would feel very unnatural. We only go on holidays together."
