Michelle Yeoh walks the red carpet for Auung San Suu Kyi biopic film

Actress Michelle Yeoh and Director Luc Besson were in Busan to promote their biopic film ‘The Lady’ about Auung San Suu Kyi.

Michelle Yeoh took on this role because she hoped that the film will pressure the Myanmar government to respect human rights.

“We are very proud of this movie and we believe it is a very important movie because of who she is and because of her fight for democracy with words,” said Yeoh.

Michelle met Suu Kyi last December when the democracy heroine was released from two decades of on-off house arrest.”

“The Lady” will be released around the world on the 30th November 2011.

He said Suu Kyi had yet to see the final film.

“She said I will see it when I am courageous enough,” said Besson. Besson also stated that the activist had not read the script or been involved in the production of the film.
