Actress Michelle Yeoh, best known for her roles in hits such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Bond movie Tomorrow Never Dies, is foraying into Bollywood with an untitled project.

The 54-year-old Chinese-Malaysian star, who calls herself a great fan of the Hindi film industry and actor Aamir Khan, said the movie will be an action drama.

“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.

“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.

The actress did not reveal much about the film but said she will be working with an Indian actor.

Speaking 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.
