When Michelle Yeoh called Aamir not just an “incredible actor” but a “humanitarian”
Everything, everywhere, all at once — but not in an Aamir Khan film, yet. Academy award winner Michelle Yeoh’s decade old interview has now gone viral where the star had expressed her desire to team up with Aamir for a film.
At the recently concluded 95th Academy Awards, Michelle Yeoh made history after she became the first Asian to win an Oscar in the Best Actress category for her role in the science-fiction comedy Everything Everywhere All at Once.
In a 2013 interview with Bollywood Hungama, Michelle Yeoh had spilled beans about how the two were the brand ambassadors of an NGO but had never worked together in a professional capacity. Michelle had also called Aamir not just an “incredible actor” but a “humanitarian.”
“I have not worked with Aamir Khan but we are both brand ambassadors of NGO which is called Live to Love which is about saving the environment. And I am just a great fan of his work, he is not just an incredible actor but he is a humanitarian. He is funny, he is smart. And I hope I get a chance to work with him very soon. Do you hear that Aamir?” she had said.
During the interview, Michelle was also asked if she had seen Aamir’s then blockbuster, 3 Idiots. To which the star said, “Of course, I don’t think there’s anybody who hasn’t seen that! That was very charming, so smart and funny.”
Meanwhile Aamir was last seen in Laal Singh Chaddha, which was a box office disaster. The actor is currently said to be reading scripts and finalising his return to the big screen.
