Chinese megastar, Fan Bingbing, who was in Singapore for the 34th Singapore International Film Festival had the opportunity to have an audience with the Sultan of Johor.

According to a post on Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar's Facebook, the visit was organised by her Johor-born international manager Jersey Chong.

Chong said he had wanted to introduce Bingbing to the future Yang DiPertuan Agong.

"As an Anak Johor, I am so proud that my Sultan will be the next King of Malaysia. We wrote officially to the Johor Palace to enquire if Bingbing could call on His Majesty. We were thrilled when the reply came that Tuanku Sultan has graciously agreed to meet Bingbing," said Chong to the "Royal Press Office".

The movie star was accompanied by her mother, Zhang Chuanmei, who is an entrepreneur, and her younger brother, Fan Chengcheng, who is also a famous pop singer and actor in China.

Bingbing is among the world's highest-paid actresses and also runs her own artistes' management agency, a production company and Fan Beauty – a cosmetics and skincare brand that has achieved great success in China.

She has also been the face of Adidas, Louis Vuitton and Moet, selling everything from lipsticks to diamonds.
