Michelle Yeoh and husband stranded in Nepal after earthquake

​Malaysian actress Michelle Yeoh is believed to be stranded in Nepal, following a deadly earthquake that shook the country on Saturday (April 25).

She is believed to be with her husband Jean Todt, who is in Kathmandu for the inaugural Asia-Pacific Sport Regional Congress organised by Federation Internationale De L'Automobile (FIA).

Todt is the president of FIA, a world motor sport governing body and Yeoh is its road safety ambassador.

A statement released by FIA said that all delegates are safe.

The actress, who is known for her roles in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and the 1997 James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies, is believed to have escaped uninjured with her husband.

The couple were attending an official function in a hotel when the earthquake struck.

An associate of the FIA, Vicky Chandhok, the former president of the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India, tweeted that they were huddling in a car park on Saturday after the quake struck.

 

 

They reportedly fled the hotel with other guests.
