STUDIO Kembara, which is behind the box-office success Mat Kilau: Kebangkitan Pahlawan, is considering taking legal action against an individual who claimed it owes him RM150,000, Berita Harian reported.

The man claimed to be the landowner where the movie was filmed in 2019, alleging that the studio had failed to pay him fees for providing the location, accommodation and other expenses.

Studio Kembara producer and managing director Abdul Rahman Dali denied the allegations, saying the individual only gained ownership of the land after filming was completed in February 2019.

“All suppliers involved have been paid for their services and duties. We believe that these are false allegations and an attempt to deceive and swindle money from us.

“Studio Kembara’s legal team is now considering taking legal action on the basis of fraud, as well as for defamation and tarnishing our good name,” he added.

> Despite being hospitalised for a chronic disease, a student in Seberang Perai, Penang, is determined to take her Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia exam, Utusan Malaysia reported.

Nur Eiffa Hazeeqa Mohd Hafiz, 18, said she was undaunted in sitting for the exams in her hospital room despite concerns from her family and friends.

“Despite being sick, I am determined to do my best,” she said.

Nur Eiffa, who has been suffering from a type of inflammatory bowel disease known as Crohn’s disease for over seven years, said she also has various other health complications, which had led to regular hospital visits since she was a baby.

“I also have obesity and other gastroenterology diseases, some of which I have had before I was even one year old, and I have had four surgeries since,” said the eldest of four siblings.

She added that her recent hospitalisation was due to an ostomy surgery around her chest and the nape of the neck to allow her to take specialised medicine effectively.

Her mother Sharifah Nur Aminah Syed Abd Hamid, 41, said her daughter’s medical expenses have left the family with no savings and in dire straits financially.
