Hollywood star Jackie Chan said in Chennai on Friday that he yearned to do an Indian film and was "eagerly waiting" for a good project.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the audio release of Dasavatharam, starring Kamal Hassan, Chan said: "India is the world's biggest market for movies. I want to do a film here. I am eagerly waiting for a good project."

Escorted by Dasavatharam director KS Ravi Kumar, Chan described Bollywood star Mallika Sherawat, who shares a brief screen space with him in The Myth, as a dear friend and a sister.

Answering questions on his ability to do daredevil stunts despite his 54 years, he said: "I have no fixed diet as I eat anything I like. But the secret of my fitness is exercise, which I never miss."

Chan is here at the invitation of Oscar Ravichandran, producer of Dasavatharam in which Kamal Hassan performs an unprecedented 10 roles.

Chan arrived in Chennai on a chartered flight and is accompanied by 10 personal bodyguards.
