Best Actor Nick Cheung Ka Fai two nights ago shot a chase scene on the streets of Tsim Sha Tsui. Injuring his leg earlier, he still got an all out performance and ran back and forth on the streets several times. Because as the night grew later the number of pedestrians grew as well, the crew was very nervous and once erected a human wall to block off the production and prevent any scene being leaked.
Two nights ago around 8PM, Cheung Ka Fai appeared on the streets of Tsim Sha Tsui East to work on his film BAU LIT DIM (EXPLOSION POINT). Many extras gathered to play reporters. Ka Fai with blood on his face was in a street chase. He held the suspect in the film onto the ground and handcuffed him. They struggled during the process with a lot of action. Because of repeated shoots, Ka Fai needed to ran back and forth several times. As he was limping he seemed to be still ailing. The crew often handed him a mirror for him to fix his make up and "fake blood".
Best Actor's charm indeed was extraordinary. Many pedestrians after recognizing Cheung Ka Fai refused to leave. Some stood at the nearby taxi stand to watch the shoot. While watching the "free show" some pedestrians were about to raise their phones to take photos, but the crew immediately pointed at them to stop. As the night grew later the number of pedestrians grew as well, the crew later added more help and sent even more workers to erect a human wall to block any pedestrian from taking more photos and to prevent the scene being leaked. The crowd did not dwindle though, with the sudden onset of rain, the team finally was forced to temporarily halt production.
