Filming for the highly-anticipated local movie “Ah Boys To Men 4” (ABTM4) officially began in late June this year. However, it has since been delayed by about a week due to issues such as rainy weather and, more notably, the use of real tanks provided by the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF). Production is slow but the delay is necessary,” shared director Jack Neo in Mandarin during a media set visit on Tuesday (5 September) afternoon.
Ah Boys to Men 4 (ABTM4) producers have spoken out after an audition involving local actor Shrey Bhargava, 22, sparked racial controversy.
Local actor Shrey Bhargava has responded to criticism of his post regarding his audition for Jack Neo's "Ah Boys to Men 4", saying that the issue of reducing a minority to a caricature was not exclusive to the movie and that he was asking for it to be recognised as such. "My intentions have never been to insult anyone or blame anyone. I repeat what I have said in my previous posts: this is not about who's at fault," he said in a Facebook post on Monday (29 May).
