Taiwanese Mandopop star Jay Chou, who loves comic book heroes, tried to persuade a shop manager to sell him a replica of the Batmobile.
According to a report in The Star, Chou, who was in Malaysia for a commercial shoot, had gone twice to a mall in Kuala Lumpur last weekend to persuade the shop manager to sell him the reproduced model of the car used by one of his favourite superheroes, Batman.
The manager had passed the message to the shop owner and it is learnt that Chou would get his wish to own a Batmobile.
The vehicle cannot be driven.
Chou had reportedly seen the replica when he was shopping at the mall last August and had wanted to buy it.
