In a 2013 interview with Bollywood Hungama, Michelle Yeoh spoke candidly about how the two were brand ambassadors for an NGO, but never worked together in a professional capacity. Michelle called Aamir not only an “incredible actor” but also a “humanitarian”.
“I haven’t worked with Aamir Khan but we both are brand ambassadors of an NGO called Live to Love which is about saving the environment. And I’m just a huge fan of his work, he’s not just an incredible actor, he’s a humanitarian. He’s funny, he’s smart. And I hope that I will get a chance to work with him very soon. Are you listening Aamir? He said that.
During the interview, Michele was also asked whether she had seen Aamir’s then blockbuster, 3 Idiots. To which the star said, “Of course, I don’t think there’s anybody who hasn’t seen it! It was so charming, so smart and funny.”
Meanwhile Aamir was last seen in Laal Singh Chaddha, which was a failure at the box office. The actor is said to be currently reading scripts and finalizing his comeback on the big screen.
