After numerous questions by fans who wondered and pondered whether or not Datuk Aaron Aziz had been left out of Syamsul Yusof’s upcoming new movie “The Original Gangster”, the truth has finally dropped.

Local Malay news portal mStar, reported that Syamsul said the decision to drop Aaron from the film was mainly due to his age and health condition.

The 39-year-old director added that the decision was also not his alone and involved the voices of the production team, including the line of publishers as well as friends of the actors.

I am the last person who wants to drop Aaron’s name from the film because my producers told me that Aaron wasn’t the right fit, he’s old and he has gained weight. But I told them no, we have to give him time. He can lose weight. But besides that, he also has a slipped disc condition.

He added that this decision was made to avoid any chances of Aaron risking any injuries on set.

Besides that, Syamsul also added that the second reason for this decision was actors Sharnaaz and Beto Kusyairi, the producers, the choreography team, and the rest informing him that they were not confident with Aaron because of his condition.

We have had training sessions before the shooting and everyone came to me to tell me that Aaron is facing some difficulties while training.

Additionally, the KL Gangster director also revealed that he had received a negative reaction from Aaron after he broke the news to him.

Syamsul also claimed that the actor had put the blame on him.

I called him and apologised before telling him the whole thing. Because I’m the last person who wants him out due to those factors. He suddenly started venting at me. I’ve explained to him that I had to make the decision and I don’t mind if that’s how he perceives me now.

Syamsul Yusof

On March 13, Aaron had confirmed that his name was dropped from the cast list of the film.

However, the actor was reluctant to share the reason why his name had been dropped in respect of Syamsul’s father, Datuk Yusof Haslam.
