Singapore’s Zingshot to Play ‘Mahjong’ With Hong Kong Stars

HONG KONG – A mixed cast of Hong Kong and Singapore stars will play off against each other in “King of Mahjong,” a comedy which is now in production.

The mahjong comedy is a staple of the Hong Kong film industry, but is new to Singapore.

The story focuses on two rival mahjong players, a huge tournament and the kidnapped wife of one of the players.

Directed by Adrian Teh, who has enjoyed success with “Wedding Diary” parts I and II, the film stars Hong Kong’s Chapman To (pictured above in “Diva”) and Michelle Ye opposite Singapore’s Mark Lee.

The film is fully financed by Zingshot Productions and will be released next year by Singapore’s Clover Films. Teh’s Malaysia-based Asia Tropical Films is also a producer.
