When Michelle Yeoh nearly missed the cut for Hari Malaysia
Bond girl Michelle Yeoh just barely made it in Malaysian filmmaker-singer Pete Teo’s ambitious Hari Malaysia video today, a week after a Putrajaya media aide told her the clip could be used as opposition propaganda.
The Ipoh-born Hollywood actress is one of many famous Malaysian personalities, including politicians, whose faces were superimposed on scenes from both the 1957 Merdeka declaration and the Malaysia declaration of 1963.
The Malaysian Insider understands Yeoh asked to see the final cut of the 4.25-minute video clip just over a week before it was broadcast today to decide whether she wanted to be part of the clip.
“She has a two-second appearance. In the end, she decided to stay on,” a source told The Malaysian Insider.
The Hari Malaysia video clip was made in remembrance of Malaysia’s founding prime minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman, who worked with the respective leaders of Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore to form Malaysia on September 16, 1963.
Apart from Yeoh, those appearing in the video clip are Umno’s Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah and MCA deputy president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.
Others include DAP leader Lim Kit Siang, PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar, Bersih co-chair Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan, actress-director Jo Kukathas, dancer Ramli Ibrahim, singer David Arumugam, rapper Namewee, activist Datuk Paduka Marina Mahathir and veteran footballer Santokh Singh.
