KUALA LUMPUR, April 3 — Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh will be returning to Malaysia this month to meet her fans for the first time since winning an Oscar.

Yeoh will be meeting her fans at a red-carpet event at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur’s centre court on April 18 at 5.30pm.

The meet-and-greet session will be open to the public and no prior registration is required.

Yeoh is also scheduled to attend a private concert dinner that same night to celebrate her mother’s birthday.


The 60-year-old actress made history last month after becoming the first Malaysian and Asian to win the Best Actress gong at the 95th Academy Awards.

The Ipoh-born was honoured with the ‘Best Actress in a Leading Role’ award for Everything Everywhere All at Once at Hollywood’s most prestigious award ceremony at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

During her acceptance speech, Yeoh dedicated her historic win to her mother Datin Janet Yeoh.


“She’s 84 and I’m taking this home to her,” she said.

Before her Oscars win, Yeoh bagged ‘Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy’ at the Golden Globes Awards.

She also became the first Asian actress to win at the Screen Actors Guild Awards 2023 in February for ‘Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role’.
