HOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles, Los Angeles Bureau) – After all the social media hype, news reports and speculation, loyal fans of former talk show host and presidential sister Kris Aquino were shocked and disappointed that their idol isn’t one of the main cast members named for an upcoming Hollywood film, “Crazy Rich Asians.” This major Hollywood film based on the novel by best-selling author Kevin Kwan, will have an all-Asian cast.
IMDb, Hollywood’s official repository of film projects, reveals the names of the cast of the new film, including Constance Yu, Michelle Yeoh, Gemma Chan, Awkwafina and Sonoya Mizuno, but no Kris Aquino.
Still, fans are hoping that rumors indicating that Aquino will play an Asian princess 👸 in the film are true.
However, sources close to the Philippines’ Queen of All Media say that Aquino misread the casting call invitation she received. Indeed, she was invited to play the role of an Asian princess but not in Hollywood. The invitation came from Bollywood.
