‘Crazy Rich Asians’ starts filming in Kuala Lumpur

KUALA LUMPUR, April 21 — Celeb watchers: If you’re out and about in Kuala Lumpur this weekend, you might want to keep your eyes peeled.

Crazy Rich Asians is currently filming on location in the capital.

It is understood that some scenes have already been shot in Singapore.

The film’s three main stars — Henry Golding, Constance Wu and Gemma Chan — have been sharing pictures of the KL leg of the shoot via Instagram.

Chan shared two of landmarks, KL Tower and Petronas Twin Towers, while Wu recorded her reaction to the city’s notorious traffic jams.

The adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s New York Times best-selling book is directed by Jon M. Chu.

The plot follows Rachel Chu (Wu), an American-born Chinese economics professor, who travels to her boyfriend Nick’s (Golding) hometown of Singapore for his best friend’s wedding — only to discover that Nick is from a family that is impossibly wealthy.

Chan plays Nick’s fashionable cousin who is referred to as “the goddess” and is known for her beauty and impeccable fashion sense.

The film also stars Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh as Nick’s disapproving mother. – Malaymailonline
