Kris Aquino confirmed that she will be walking down the red carpet of the Hollywood premiere of the Crazy Rich Asians movie on August 7. Kris was initially doubtful that she could attend the premiere since she was advised to have a complete bed rest after she had an anaphylactic reaction during her outdoor shoot in Indonesia recently.
In an Instagram post on Wednesday, Kris shared that her trip to Hollywood for the premiere will push through.
"The 'tigas ulo/bawal sumuko/kakayanin lahat' in me hindi nagpatinag. Nagawan po ng paraan- lilipad kasama ng mga anak, our team, and my doctor to walk the red carpet for the Hollywood premiere of the ground breaking, all Asian cast movie @crazyrichasians from @wbpictures," she posted.
Kris remarked that she could not allow that Filipinos would not be represented in the international event.
"Hangarin ng puso ko na mabitbit ang bandila ng PH in a movie highlighting Asian Culture. YES, let us always remember & uphold: WE FILIPINOS ARE WORLD CLASS! (sic)," she wrote.
Kris was chosen to play a role in the movie after she auditioned for the film on March 25, 2017. She started filming her scenes on June 14, 2017. According to IMDb, she plays the role of Princess Intan.
