Will Kris Aquino Appear in the Crazy Rich Asians Sequel?
Whether you like it or not, it’s very hard to put Kris Aquino out of business. Despite not appearing on television for the last five years, cash keeps flowing into the coffers of this crazy and rich Asian.
All she needs to do is upload a video on Facebook or YouTube. It doesn’t even have to be a controversial video, it can be mundane things ordinary Filipinos do: A video of Kris Aquino cooking rice attracted four million views on Facebook. Another video of Kris Aquino eating with her hands has seven million views.
Filipinos can’t resist watching Aquino doing these things, because let’s face it: She is regarded as some kind of royalty, and members of royalty don’t cook rice or eat with their hands.
But there is one person whose opinion can make Aquino even richer: Kevin Kwan.
The celebrity author behind the box office hit Crazy Rich Asians is responsible for casting Aquino as Princess Intan, the vicious and ultra-wealthy royalty who saved Rachel Chu from embarrassment at the “Wedding of the Century.”
Apparently, Aquino has been texting Kwan regularly ever since the movie came out. In a press conference for Shopee, Aquino teased about reprising her role in the sequel.
“[Kevin’s] been one of my really consistent WhatsApp friends, and I asked him because the opening of China Rich Girlfriend is the wedding. So I asked him, 'Am I going to be in the wedding? Is Princess Intan invited in the wedding?” said Aquino.
And Kwan’s reply?
“He said, 'Of course! Because you’re the one who gave [Rachel] her validation in Crazy Rich Asians. I said, 'Oh my Gosh, hope it happens!’” Aquino said.
So there you have it.
But regardless of Aquino appearing in China Rich girlfriends, we can expect she’d be making more cash anyway. Maybe she’ll upload a video of herself doing laundry.
