Aaron Kwok has denied speculations that he was insinuating director Stanley Tong in his acceptance speech at the Hong Kong Film Awards.

Previously, the actor, who won his first HKFA Best Actor award after his fifth nomination through “Port of Call”, made a meaningful speech where he thanked his family and manager Siu Mei for their support throughout his career.

He also expressed his gratitude towards those who treated him badly, saying that it has made him more determined to work hard and improve himself.
Aaron’s words sparked speculations that he was talking about director Stanley Tong, who helmed the actor’s 2000 movie, “China Strike Force”. Rumour has it that the two of them fought on set and parted ways following the movie’s release.
However, according to Oriental Daily, Aaron’s manager denied that the actor was talking about any individual in particular and that he was just referring to anybody who has wronged him in the past.
“Let’s not speculate who it is. Everything that happened became a learning experience for Aaron and he is thankful to everybody who has made him what he is today,” she said.
