New iflix original to feature Malaysia’s Anwar Ibrahim

One of Malaysia’s most prominent politicians, Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim, has agreed to participate in iflix’s latest original – “Hot Ones” presented by First We Feast – in a coup for the Malaysia-based regional streamer.

The show will be hosted by local Malaysian actress/host/singer Maya Karin.

Details have not been disclosed beyond “coming soon” in the social media outreach asking fans to submit their questions before 12 April.

The campaign went live today with the opening question: “Can Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim handle Hot Ones sate while answering hot questions?" Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim is Malaysia’s president of the People's Justice Party and leader of the Pakatan Harapan coalition, and was deputy prime minister of Malaysia from 1993 to 1998.

News of “Hot Ones” comes a few days after iflix announced its alliance with Japanese entertainment conglomerate Yoshimoto Kogyo.
