Last April 12, Kris Aquino took to Instagram to share her excitement after Crazy Rich Asians author Kevin Kwan followed her on IG.
This was two days after the Queen of All Media posted on Instagram that she has been reading Kwan’s trilogy novels Crazy Rich Asians, China Rich Girlfriend, and Rich People Problems during the Holy Week break.
Kris’s caption read: “#Fangirl mode- sorry just had to post because I WAS SO THRILLED! 1 of my favorite authors @kevinkwanbooks is now following me.”
Kevin is reportedly one of the executive producers of Warner Bros.’ upcoming movie adaptation of his book Crazy Rich Asians, the first installment out of the trilogy novels.
As it happened, Kris getting an Instagram follow-back from Kevin stirred a buzz among her avid Instagram followers, who have been speculating on her participation in a yet-to-be-named Hollywood film.
This was in relation to the Queen of All Media's good news last April 7, where she first spoke about having auditioned for an "international project."

Yesterday, April 16, the Queen of All Media posted another Instagram update, saying that she has been offered a “participation” in a “big Hollywood studio movie.”
Kris, however, has refrained from revealing the title of the Hollywood film.
Her caption partly read: "Tonight I fly to Los Angeles to meet Chris Lee, my agent to sign my contract. I passed 5 levels of intense scrutiny and was offered a role.
"It is surreal to be reading the script from a major Hollywood studio watermarked on every page with my name.
"I signed a non disclosure agreement so until they reveal my participation I can't share any details about the movie & my role."
