The filming of “Crazy Rich Asians” saw not one, but three road closures for their shoot on 11, 14, and 17 June.

The cast and crew of “Crazy Rich Asians” came to the Republic this month (June), and you may have spotted them filming in locations such as Ann Siang Hill and CHIJMES. It’s the story of Chinese-American academic Rachel Chu (Constance Wu), who accompanies her Singaporean boyfriend Nick Young (Henry Golding) back home for a wedding.
