As reported on Skypost, the actor, who appeared at the press conference of his new series, “ICAC Investigators 2022”, stated that he knew that his statement in the said interview would go viral as soon as it came out.
In a recent interview with Bob Lam, Benjamin revealed that he first met Niki at a subway back when she was a model and he was yet to become an actor. When the actress asked him why he did not pursue her then, Benjamin said that he wouldn’t dare with only 20 dollars in his pocket.
“Actually, it was just for dramatic effect,” he explained to the media, regarding the interview. “What matters is that this happened 25 or 26 years ago. People don’t have to be so serious.”
