Tony Leung’s surgery disrupts filming for The Grand Master

Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi’s screen time in the film will also be greatly reduced. The 31-year-old was recently embroiled in a donation fund scandal for not giving the full amount of one million yuan she promised to remit to the Sichuan earthquake.

His unique approach to filmmaking might have been met with mixed reactions but his influence is long-lasting.
