Andy Lau Tak Wa two nights ago doubled the pleasure. At the 6th Asian Film Award he won the online My Favorite Actor award but also won a 2011 Leaders of the Year award on the same night for his extraordinary achievements and outstanding contributions in show business in the past year. Other show business winners included director Ann Hui On Wa and TVB executive chair Leung Nai Peng. Wa Jai lamented on the stage that this award was an encouragement. Because 20 years ago his film company was sued for 200 million, it once had a lot of difficulties. He also joked that he often miscalculated. A SIMPLE LIFE (TOH JEH)'s good performance was unexpected.
Dressed up for the 2011 Leaders of the Year award, Wa Jai said that he was the happiest about being able to win with Ann. "Everyone is worried about Hong Kong film's development. Different directors are toiling around in different locations. Ann however stays in Hong Kong. With her in command I am very at ease." What area did Wa Jai feel he had leadership abilities in? He honestly said in film and said that if anyone who had any need or wanted his assistance could approach him.
Wa Jai also revealed that he has always told people to knock on his company's door with scripts, but he would turn some away depending on the production. The company every year will plan to invest 20 to 25 million on film productions. The company will be able to make only one or two movies that cost between 8 to 10 million, if the production cost will not be too high then it will be able to make 6 movies.
