Crazy Rich Asians pushes Singapore into the spotlight

Touted as a Hollywood watershed, Crazy Rich Asians has been making international headlines as the first Hollywood movie in 25 years to feature a majority Asian cast – a feat not matched since The Joy Luck Club in 1993.

Not only is the romcom widely considered a win for Asians and Asian-Americans, it is also a victory for Singapore.

Opening here on Aug 22, the highly anticipated film was partly shot on our sunny shores and has pushed Singapore and Singaporeans into the spotlight.
