Box office golden couple, Andy Lau (劉德華) and Sammi Cheng (鄭秀文) collaborate again in Johnnie To’s (杜琪峯) new crime thriller, Blind Detective <盲探>. Recently, Andy and Sammi headed to Mongkok, Hong Kong for filming and were mobbed by thousands of onlookers, wanting to catch a glimpse of the two superstars.
The production crew had difficulty managing the crowd as there were too many spectators crowding the filming scene. The onlookers kept flashing their cameras during the filming and it interrupted the filming process. Director Johnny To reportedly was annoyed and complained to the production crew.
When Andy and Sammi appeared at Mongkok two days ago, the street was overfilled with people. Many people also cheered upon seeing the two superstars. Some stores even closed for business for fear that there may be accidents. After filming for a scene, Sammi quickly got into a tent. However, many curious residents even attempted to peep inside her tent!
When Andy appeared, the crowd was extremely excited. In an online poll, many netizens interestingly voted for Andy to run for the seat of Chief Executive of Hong Kong. Like a politician, Andy immediately waived and greeted the crowd. Andy also got into his blind detective role quickly although there were many curious pedestrians watching him.
Andy and Sammi were spotted discussing their roles with Director To. Whenever they stepped out from the tent, the crowd would cheer and applaud. The crowd also refused to disperse until the filming wrapped up by midnight.
