Hong Kong actress Ada Choi is still shaken after getting involved in a 'kidnapping' incident while working in China recently.
XI’AN, China: Hong Kong actress Ada Choi revealed Saturday that a Chinese company had forced her into appearing at two events instead of just the one she was contracted for, while she was working in China recently, reported Hong Kong media.
Her vehicle was also stopped by several men in two cars while she was on her way to the airport, after she appeared at an event which was cut short when it started to become chaotic.
“This is the first time I have felt that my life was threatened. It’s like being kidnapped!” said Choi of her harrowing trip to China in a micro blog post.
“All we could do was inform the police! Luckily, they came quickly and brought us to the airport. I still feel scared.”
Choi’s husband Max Zhang condemned the Chinese company’s actions in an expletive-laden micro blog post, and said the company had “restricted her (Choi’s) personal freedom”.
He described what the company did as being “no different from kidnapping”.
“Which woman will not be scared if she was stopped on the highway by so many men?” said Zhang in his post.
Choi’s manager said the actress “has no plans to work in China for now” and promised that strong legal action will be taken against the errant Chinese company.
Choi, who gained a lot of popularity in China after appearing in the 2012 hit drama "Empresses in the Palace", isn’t the first Hong Kong celebrity who has had bad experiences working there.
Hong Kong actress Linda Chung told reporters on Sunday that Chinese thugs once tried to extort money from her film crew.
Hong Kong actor Anthony Wong said in a recent interview that he had to accompany his clients on drinking and singing sessions while working in China.
“Once it got so scary that I didn’t care about the money and just escaped with my assistant and the production staff!” recounted Wong.
