Action-comedy Abang Long Fadil 3 is a runaway success.

The film starring Zizan Razak and Johan Raja Lawak has earned more than RM10mil at the box office since it opened at cinemas on Sept 8.

Directed by Syafiq Yusof, the third instalment is winning the hearts of the audiences as it boasts comedic moments as well as plenty of action.

“For the action sequences, the actors did some training prior to shooting their scenes. And when we shot the scenes, I made them do it again and again until I was happy with it," said Syafiq.

“Some action sequences took three to four days to shoot."

Actress Maya Karin said that she did some of the less dangerous action scenes herself, while her stunt double took on the more extreme ones.

“Whatever scenes that I could do myself, I did. Like the one involving a fight with Elizabeth Tan.

“For that, we practised quite a bit. And we filmed it at a warehouse where it was extremely hot, and we were sweating so much. It was exhausting, but fun.

“And Elizabeth is very sporting, so it was fun to work with her. She’s not afraid if I accidentally hit her. That makes it easier because then we can just go all out,” Maya said.

When asked if there were any injuries on set, Tan shared: “I was bruised all over doing this movie. But you can’t see it in the film because it’s all covered by makeup. And not just me, Maya and Daniella (Sya) had bruises all over too. But it was worth it.”
