Andy Lau accident sparks rush for insurance cover by Asian film studios


The Asian film industry’s demand for insurance cover has increased significantly since last year, after top Hong Kong star and singer Andy Lau Tak-wah was injured after falling from a horse during a commercial shoot in Thailand, according to sector experts. 

The class of insurance policy has been commonplace in Hollywood for years, with all major production studios in Tinseltown buying those which potentially pay out on public liability or extra costs arising from injury or death of a star or members of the cast – but they are still relatively unusual in Asia.
