Huat straight teeth you have: A-niu bids farewell to crooked teeth with new CNY comedy

Published on Jan 29, 2014 5:10 PM

Malaysian singer-actor A-niu's latest Chinese New Year comedy will be the last time you see his trademark crooked teeth on the big screen.

At a press conference on Jan 29, A-niu said he had his crooked front teeth removed after filming for his latest flick, Huat Ah! Huat Ah! Huat!, directed by Malaysian Tan Boon Huat, wrapped.

A visit to the dentist had revealed that his teeth were decaying, said A-niu, 38. At the press conference held at Resorts World Sentosa's Convention Centre, he was wearing temporary dentures and will do so until he can get his tooth implants.

In Huat Ah! Huat Ah! Huat!, which opens Jan 30, he plays autistic kampung youth, Ah Huat. While Ah Huat cannot express himself well, he has a knack for brewing good coffee. He goes through a series of events in order to achieve happiness and success, while staying true to his honest, down-to-earth nature.
