Well, it's like this:

As the birthplace of Chin Peng, and the place where he spent most of his early life, Perak is the most prominently featured Malaysian state in Lelaki Komunis Terakhir. From a tender age, if you were to ask me to name a single thing that I would link with Perak, it would be the pomelo fruit. So I knew right off the bat that our poster needed a pomelo ... or more.

The fact that the pomeloes have eyes can be attributed (or blamed) to the designer Deepak Kumaran Menon. I cunningly got him to do this for very little money by choosing his movie Chemman Chaalai as one of my 5 favourites in one of those celebrity year-end polls . The Men At Work signs were the inspiration of our composer Hardesh Singh.

And it's a cartoon because no live pomeloes were willing to pose for us.

Most likely I'll be in HK from 8-14 April. It'd be great encountering some familiar faces there.

Eye-popping poster (pun intended). Would've sent you some pomeloes if I'd known you'd needed them...!

Oh my god, we've ALL found you ALL at once. This might require some air conditioning.

I want one of those posters. I want to be the FIRST in San Francisco to have one. Please?
