Donnie Yen Chi Tan promoted the film 'Special Identity' in Beijing yesterday and responded to claims of his high salary.

According to an article in hktopten, he said that this time the martial art choreography will differ from before, as he hoped to start a new era of "Yen Kung Fu".

Speaking of his astronomical salary, Yen Chi Tan said, "Viewers like to read of this kind of news, but how can mine possibly be the highest?

"Everyone keeps talking about my salary now, how come no one ever talks about at my lowest when I only had HK$100 in my savings account?

"Actors will always have their ups and downs, salary doesn't mean anything."
