HONG Kong superstar Andy Lau has been invited to the celebration party for Hantu Kak Limah, which is now the highest-grossing Malaysian film, Sin Chew Daily reported.
Lau is one of the investors of the comedy-horror film released on Aug 9. It netted RM20.5mil in ticket sales in just 11 days.
The film’s executive producer Gayatri Pillai said the movie only cost about RM1.8mil to make.
“Our boss Andy Lau is very happy. He sent us a text message to congratulate us. We invited him to our celebration party, but his attendance will depend on his schedule,” she said.
Produced by Infinitus Entertainment (M) Sdn Bhd and Astro Shaw, the film is the fourth one set in the fictional village of Kampung Pisang and the third offering in the Hantu Kak Limah trilogy.
Infinitus Entertainment was founded by Lau and Datuk Seri Robin Tan, according to the film’s executive producer T.P. Lim.
