HCM CITY — Gái Già Lắm Chiêu V – Những Cuộc Đời Vương Giả (Camellia Sisters – Living Like Royalty), a film about love and women, will be postponed due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the producer MAR6 Pictures has announced in HCM City.

The film was scheduled to be in cinemas during the Tết (Lunar New Year) holiday.

Its official trailer was released on YouTube in December and has attracted more than 1.7 million viewers.

“We decided to delay our film’s release until after Tết because we wanted to guarantee the success of ticket sales,” said a representative of the film’s producer.

The producer worked with the film’s distributor, Lotte Entertainment, to make the decision.

Gái Già Lắm Chiêu V – Những Cuộc Đời Vương Giả is the fifth edition of the chick-flick series called Gái Già Lắm Chiêu (The Tricky Ladies) by young directors Bảo Nhân and Nam Cito.

It has attracted A-list actresses Lê Khanh, Hồng Vân, and Kaity Nguyễn who have helped to attract fans since the staff began filming their first scenes in Huế City.

The producer spent VNĐ46 billion (US$2 million) on production.

Since the debut of the series in 2016, the producers have revealed each new edition at Tết. Last year, Gái Già Lắm Chiêu 3 (The Royal Bride) earned VNĐ165 billion ($7.1 million) in ticket sales.

“Although everything was prepared, we had to postpone our filming in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” said the film’s director Nam Cito. “To live in the unfortunate time of COVID-19 is to always prepare for the worst scenarios.”

“We’re sorry. We hope our fans and audiences share and support our business,” he added.

Dozens of drama shows and concerts scheduled in the city before and during Tết have also been canceled.

“We lost several hundred millions of đồng on marketing and advertising our show on local media. However, we felt the need to postpone our show, Rap Việt All-Star Live Concert, to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among all artists and audiences,” said a representative of DatViet VAC, the producer of Rap Việt All-Star Live Concert

The concert was scheduled for January 30. The event has attracted more than 50 rappers, singers and dancers, including stars Binz, Wowy and Dế Choắt. — VNS
