London, (ANI): Hollywood star Michelle Yeoh is apparently planning
to play Aung San Suu Kyi in a film about the Burmese pro-democracy
Yeoh visited Suu Kyi to discussed the plan and both had dinner
together on Monday night, Suu Kyi's lawyer Nyan Win said. "I
understand she is planning to play her in a film in the near
future," the BBC quoted the lawyer as saying.
The Malaysian actress is best known for her role in the 1997
James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies. Yeoh was also seen
talking to Suu Kyi and her younger son Kim Aris at Rangoon airport
on Tuesday as both the actress and Aris were waiting to board
planes to leave the country.
Aris had arrived in Rangoon on 23 November and seen his
65-year-old mother for the first time in a decade. Aung San Suu Kyi
was released from house arrest on 13 November - less than a week
after the country's first election for 20 years, which was widely
condemned as a sham designed to consolidate the military rulers'
