Malaysian-born Chinese actress Michelle Yeoh, best known for her roles in hits like “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” and Bond movie “Tomorrow Never Dies”, is foraying into Bollywood with an untitled project.
The 54-year-old star, who calls herself a great fan of the Hindi film industry and actor Aamir Khan, said the movie will be an action drama with some dance thrown in.
“I’m planning to work in Bollywood and it’s going to be an action film with obviously some dance because it is Bollywood,” she said on the sidelines of Naropa festival.
“It will be about a Chinese and Indian family. In reality, we are such close neighbours but we are culturally so different and through this film we want to show how we can get along,” Yeoh said.
Former beauty queen who was crowned Miss Pacific in 1983 did not reveal much about the film but said she would be working with an Indian actor.
Talking about her favourite star in Bollywood, Yeoh said, “I really admire Aamir Khan and I would love to work with him.”
Yeoh also revealed that the “3 Idiots” star was approached for the project.
The actress will next be seen in Jason Statham-starrer “Mechanic 2” the sequel to the recently released “Mechanic: Resurrection”. – CINEWS
