Malaysian superstar Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh has offered to be Datuk Jackie Chan's "new romantic interest".

Responding to the Hong Kong action star's wish to make a love story in Sarawak but only with her as his "romantic interest", Yeoh said: "We've been talking about a love story for 30 years now. Anytime you are ready, brother!"

Yeoh, who starred with Chan in Police Story 3, was talking to the emcee during the opening of the ASEAN International Film Festival and Awards (Aiffa) here on Saturday.

Special guest Chan, who was visiting Borneo for the first time, had earlier quipped that he could return to Sarawak to make a love story but only with "Yeoh as his romantic interest".

Accepting the prize for the ASEAN Inspiration Award, Chan said making movies was all that he knew his entire life, reports The Star.

"All those years, I only knew to keep on making movies. I tried to do my best. I 'promised' to keep hurting myself if I must (in order) to make better movies," said the 61-year-old.

Chan also spoke of the event on his Facebook page and wrote: "I was so happy when I arrived because I saw so many passionate fans welcoming me.

"But the happiest thing of all was meeting with my old friend, Michelle Yeoh. I truly cherish every moment and opportunity we have to see each other because we’re usually so busy that we don’t get a chance to even meet. In my new book, I wrote a section just about her!

"I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank the organizers of AIFFA and awarding me the ASEAN Inspirational Award. Thank you all for trusting me and I am very grateful for your support! Thank you."
