Ada Choi reprimands China organisers for her ‘kidnap’
After experiencing a hijack incident on China’s highway last Saturday, Ada Choi vented her frustrations online and wrote: “I’m utterly disappointed and angry with the treatment by the relevant companies. I really felt that I was being kidnapped! Honestly speaking, I'm still shivering in fear right now.”
According to Hong Kong media reports, Ada, who enjoyed a sudden rise in popularity with her latest period drama, Empresses in the Palace, was reportedly brought to attend additional events in Xi’an and Tianjin which she was not informed of. In response to her displeasure and unwillingness to attend these events, the 40-year-old actress was threatened by organisers for not fulfilling her contract arrangements.
To add to her displeasure, the China organisers were said to have stopped Ada’s car while she was on her way to the airport for her return flight back to Hong Kong. Frightened by the organisers’ abrupt and dangerous action, Ada turned to the local police for help.
Although the relevant organisers have sent out an apology letter and promised that such events would not be repeated, Ada’s husband Max Zhang was still unhappy. He sent out a warning to the authorities in an online message and wrote: “Don’t think that you can bully her just because she’s a woman.”
On the other hand, Ada’s manager revealed that the company is considering to take on legal actions against the relevant companies.
