Little did a retired Malaysian air force officer thought that he would be making a movie, but that is exactly what Lt Col (Rtd) Jagindar Singh Charl has ended up doing.
And the journey took him to Singapore today (13 July 2018) as the Tamil comedy thriller Atcham Thavir is released in the neighbouring republic.
“It all happened by chance. They movie makers ran out of funds, so I stepped in,” Jagindar told Asia Samachar.
Jagindar, who was born in Perak but grew up in Puchong, Selangor, took optional retirement from the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) in 2012 after a three-decade service. He then set up JPS Consuiltancy and Training.
The movie, released in Malaysia last week, revolves around the reunion of six friends for a wedding. On the road trip to Terengganu, a state on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia, their car breaks down. The next few nights, they stayed at someone’s house. Here is where the chills and the laughs take place.
