FACT CHECK: Kris Aquino’s ‘Princess’ Role in ‘Crazy Rich Asians’

HOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles, Los Angeles Bureau) – It’s here! The official trailer of the Hollywood film, ‘Crazy Rich Asians.’

The film, based on a novel by Kevin Kwan, features an all-Asian cast, including — supposedly — Kris Aquino.

Aquino herself had been hinting about a major Hollywood project and when she was photographed at NAIA with huge multiple luggages on a trip to Singapore, many believed  it was because she’d be joining the cast of ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ as a princess.


Because of what she called a ‘non-disclosure’ agreement, Aquino could not confirm or deny her role in ‘Crazy Rich Asians.’  But in a check with imdb, the authoritative database of all film projects, Aquino is not mentioned as a member of the cast.

In the official trailer, there is no sight of Aquino, certainly not the princess that her fans were expecting.

Let’s see if fact-checkers Rappler and Vera Files would have a different take on all this.
