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 with some dance thrown in.

"I'm planning to work in 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 here.

"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 would be working with an Indian actor.

Talking about her favourite star in Bollywood, Yeoh said, "I really admire and I would love to work with him."

Yeoh also revealed that the "3 Idiots" star was approached for the project.
