KOTA KINABALU, MALAYSIA : Scenes of Mount Kinabalu will be featured in a Hong Kong TVB drama series entitled Born Rich.
The shooting of the film, which started today and continues until April 9, will be mainly at the 1Borneo Hypermall, the Tun Mustapha Glass Tower and the Gaya Street Market here as well as in several locations in Kudat, north of Sabah.
Producer Chong Wai Kin said the drama was about a father in search of a long lost son and finally reunited with the son in Sabah.
"We came down a few months ago and found Sabah to be full of exciting locations, which are ideal for the drama."
The crew will be flown to the top of the 4,095-metre Mount Kinabalu, Southeast Asia's highest peak, for the shoot.
The cast includes celebrities Benz Hui Shiu Hung, Joe Ma Tak Chung, Gallen Lo Ho Leung, Kenneth Ma Kwok Ming, Ray Lui Leung Wai, Anita Yuen Wing Yi, Jamie Chik Mei Chun, Kenix Kwok Ho Ying and Sharon Chan Man Chi.
Chong said one of the scenes would show the stars arriving in style by helicopter at the 1Borneo Hypermall's helipad.
The filming in the hypermall will include more than 80 extras, mostly locals, and cameo appearances.
