Kevin Kwan, author of the book underlying the hit film "Crazy Rich Asians", faces up to three years in jail in his native Singapore.

"He also stayed overseas without a valid exit permit", the official added.

The defence ministry said Kwan sought to renounce his Singapore citizenship in 1994, but his application and a subsequent appeal were rejected due to his failure to complete national service.

Despite widespread interest in the film, much of which is set in the city state, Kwan didn't make an appearance at a red carpet event for the movie in Singapore, unlike the majority of the Singaporean members of the cast.

Kwan has yet to comment on the claim. All Singaporean men over 18 are obliged to undertake two years of national service.

The romantic comedy, where the scion of a fabulously wealthy Singapore family brings home his not-so-rich Chinese-American economics professor girlfriend to attend his best friend's wedding and meet his disapproving parents, opened here Tuesday to packed audiences. There are actually three books in Kevin Kwan's series about one tight-knit and crazy-rich family, and if you've read all three, you may already know the next book in line is China Rich Girlfriend.

Kevin Kwan, who has lived in the USA 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. Being on Nick's arm puts a target on Rachel's back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick's own disapproving mother (Michelle Yeoh) taking aim.

Crazy Rich Asians features an worldwide cast of stars, led by Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat), Gemma Chan (Humans), Lisa Lu (2012), and Awkwafina (upcoming Ocean's 8, Neighbors 2), with Ken Jeong (the Hangover films) and Michelle Yeoh (Star Trek: Discovery, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon).

Pictures has given the OK to continue development on the Crazy Rich Asians sequel, "with plans to reunite the first movie's original team, including producers Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson".
