Legendary Hong Kong kung fu star Sammo Hung left many social media users in shock after a picture of him showing his massive weight loss was shared online.
“Big Brother Sammo cooked these few dishes and it’s really delicious,” Tam wrote in the Weibo post.
Hung, who was the action choreographer of the 2008 martial arts film “Ip Man” starring Donnie Yen and played the role of a kung fu master in its 2010 sequel “Ip Man 2”, looks unrecognizable in the picture.
Some social media users couldn’t help but be worried about the kung fu star’s health. However, Hung’s daughter-in-law cleared up the air and said his shocking weight loss is a result of eating clean.
After his operation for knee surgery in 2017, Hung’s doctors instructed the actor to lose 18 kilograms (39 pounds) when he became wheelchair-bound for two years, 8 Days reported.
