The government said in a statement that Kwan was wanted for "defaulting on his NS obligations" for failing to register as required in 1990, and for staying overseas without a valid exit permit.

Kwan left Singapore at age 11, first moving to Texas with his family, and has lived in the United States since then, Singapore media said. Director Jon M. Chu is also planning to return and direct the sequels as soon as the script is ready and Warner Bros gives its full green-light."Let the audience ask for the sequel", Nina Jacobson told Deadline in an interview. He reportedly applied twice to renounce his citizenship at a later date, but was rejected as he had not served in the military.

"Crazy Rich Asians" star Henry Golding was mistaken for a crew member by his co-star because he was so "humble".

"Mr. Kwan has committed offences under the Enlistment Act, and is liable to a fine of up to $10,000 and/or imprisonment of up to 3 years upon conviction", said the statement from Singapore's Ministry of Defence.

All male Singapore citizens and second-generation permanent residents must complete the service in one of Singapore's uniformed branches - the Singapore Armed Forces, Civil Defense Force or police - unless given an exemption.

It turns out that he is not only the scion of one of the country's wealthiest families but also one of its most sought-after bachelors.

"Crazy Rich Asians" has been hailed as a milestone for Asian representation in pop culture, featuring the first majority Asian cast for a mainstream Hollywood studio movie since 1993′s "The Joy Luck Club". With a target on her back, she has to fend off catty socialites and hold her own against Nick's domineering mother (Michelle Yeoh) while remaining true to herself.

For the most part, those in the crowd loved what they saw.

IN the hit Hollywood movie Crazy Rich Asians, Singapore's super-rich drive Ferraris and Lamborghinis, travel on private jets, and party on a container ship transformed into a nightclub at sea.
