HONG KONG - Dicky Cheung and Nicholas Tse have denied charges that they beat up a mainland Chinese co-star for real while filming a fight scene for the TV show, Xiao Yuer And Hua Wuque.
Nicholas Tse (above) and Dicky Cheung were accused of attacking actor Wang Bozhao during filming.
Actor Wang Bozhao accused them of attacking him last Saturday after he had a heated argument with their make-up artist, said Hong Kong's Ming Pao.
He said that when he went to work that night, he was told that there were changes to the screenplay and that his character would now be beaten up.
He added that he asked for a body double but Cheung and the director disagreed. Cheung and Tse then showed him how they would fake the fight, he said. But he claimed that they hit him when the camera rolled.
On Wednesday, he called a press conference in a hospital and said he had suffered injuries on his left thigh, left kidney and face. He demanded an apology, as well as compensation, from the two stars.
Cheung has told the press that he did not mean to hurt Wang and that he apologised immediately afterwards. Producer Wong Jing has said of Wang's demand for money: 'Finally, the fox has shown its tail.' The saying means someone has revealed his real intentions.
Wong added that the case has been handed to the police.

HONG KONG - Actor Nicholas Tse has been blacklisted by a Hollywood actors' union, said a Chinese mainland actor who claimed he was beaten up by Tse and co-star Dicky Cheung while filming a TV series.
Dicky Cheung (above) and Nicholas Tse are said to have been blacklisted by a Hollywood actors' union after Chinese actor Wang Bozhao claimed that he was beaten up by them.
Wang Bozhao complained a week ago that Tse and Cheung had hit him for real during a fight scene for the mainland production, Xiao Yuer And Hua Wuque, leaving him with lip, leg and tooth injuries.
Director Wong Jing has said the fighting was in line with the script.
On Saturday, Wang, claiming to be a member of a Hollywood actors' union, said a union official told him that Cheung and Tse's names will be listed as 'bad credit' with the union for the alleged beating.
The incident is threatening to divide actors in China and Hong Kong, reports Apple Daily.
Last Friday, some 30 Chinese directors and actors lent their names to a statement in support of Wang. They included veteran actors Liu Xiaoqing, Zhang Fengyi, Zhang Guoli, Zhang Tielin, Chen Daoming and Ge You and director Feng Xiaogang.
Hong Kong counterparts have also called up a Hong Kong TV professionals society to ask if they should also put up a united front for Cheung and Tse.
