Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying's daughter is said to make her debut on the big screen in a romantic comedy in which she will play a lead role that has been "tailor-made for her". However, Leung Chai-yan , 23, did not show up at a press conference on Tuesday night to announce her first formal move into local show business. The film's director had claimed she would turn up. Leung, whose personal Facebook and Instagram accounts have been deleted, could not be reached for comment. The director, Wynn Lau Chun-fai , claimed Leung could not attend because of illness. "She was already on the way, but suddenly felt very sick and could not walk at all," Lau said during the press conference. Leung was said to have signed a contract about a month ago that would give her a six-figure fee. Lau said filming would start in early March and would involve an investment of about HK$10 million. However, he said the title remained "confidential". Leung would play a social worker alongside actor-singer Don Li Yat-long , who would be a magazine reporter, Lau said. The film is set for release in June. Li, 33, became an online hit after his reinterpretation of Priscilla Chan's 1988 Canto-pop classic Silly Girl attracted more than one million views on YouTube since being uploaded two weeks ago. Leung and Li will play a pair of lovers but it is not yet decided whether kissing will be involved. The story will also not refer to her father. "I won't feel embarrassed because of her father's identity," said Li, who added that he only found out that he would play alongside Leung yesterday afternoon. Lau saidLeung's role had been "tailor-made" for her, because of her "forthrightness in speaking her mind". Leung earlier hinted she may try her hand at entertainment as the law student said she may be "bored to death" working in the legal sector. The Chief Executive's Office said it had no comment.
