'Crazy Rich Asians' author wanted in Singapore over national serviceThe author of “Crazy Rich Asians”, which has been adapted into a hit Hollywood movie, is wanted in his native Singapore for allegedly dodging mandatory national service, authorities said Wednesday. Kevin Kwan, who has lived in the US since he was 11 but is still a Singapore citizen, faces up to three years in jail and a hefty fine if convicted, the city-state’s defence ministry said. The movie adaption of his bestseller, which focuses on the glamorous world of Singapore’s super-rich, was released in the United States last week and has been hailed as a watershed for Hollywood diversity due to its mostly Asian cast.
