‘Crazy Rich Asians’ author Kevin Kwan wanted for draft dodging

Crazy Rich Asians

In an interview with ST previous year, he has said he himself is not a insane rich Asian but that he comes from a well-connected family. "Suddenly, Rachel is drawn into a dizzying world of Shanghai splendor, a world where people attend church in a penthouse, where exotic cars race down the boulevard, and where people aren't just insane rich ... they're China rich". Although the second film has not been officially greenlit, it is presumed that Chu will dive into it immediately following In the Heights.

According to Singapore's Straits Times, Kwan's family moved to Texas when he was 11, but as his appeal to renounce his Singaporean citizenship without completing NS was rejected, he could still find himself in legal jeopardy should he return to the country. It spawned two more novels, "China Rich Girlfriend " and "Rich People Problems".

Kwan is descended from a wealthy Singaporean family. Unbeknownst to Rachel, who has never been to Asia, Nick is the scion of Singapore's richest clan. Being on Nick's arm puts a target on Rachel's back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick's own disapproving mother (Michelle Yeoh) taking aim. Yes we are. Read that again America fell in love w/our kickass all-Asian cast of many different background, styles, shapes, sizes ages.& blew the lid off the expectation at 34 million dollars since we were released.

Over the top but a lot of fun: That was the verdict for many Singaporean moviegoers after watching the Hollywood blockbuster "Crazy Rich Asians", which was shot and set nearly entirely in Singapore. It is set for release on August 17, 2018.
