Everything, everywhere, at once – but not in an Aamir Khan film yet. Oscar winner Michelle Yeoh’s decade-old interview has now gone viral, where the star had expressed her desire to team up with Aamir for a film.

At the recently completed 95th Academy AwardsMichelle Yeoh made history after she became the first Asian to win an Oscar in the Best Actress category for her role in the science-fiction comedy Everything Everywhere All at Once.

In a 2013 interview with Bollywood Hungama, Michelle Yeoh had spilled the beans about how the two were brand ambassadors for an NGO but had never worked together in a professional capacity. Michelle had also called Aamir not just an “incredible actor” but a “humanitarian.”

“I have not worked with Aamir Khan, but we are both brand ambassadors for the 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, but he’s a humanitarian. He’s funny, he’s smart. And I hope I get a chance to work with him soon. Do you hear that Aamir?” she had said.

During the interview, Michelle was also asked if she had seen Aamir’s then blockbuster, 3 Idiots. To which the star said: “Of course I don’t think there’s anyone who hasn’t seen it! It was very charming, so clever and funny.”

Meanwhile, Aamir was last seen in Laal Singh Chaddha which was a box office disaster. The actor is currently said to be reading scripts and finalizing his return to the big screen.
