Singer and actress Olivia Newton-John has embraced different musical genres in her career such as country, pop and rock. Now she could possibly add Bollywood to her resume.

Newton-John revealed that she is in discussion to appear in a Bollywood film during an appearance at the Toronto film festival, AFP reported.

"I have a Bollywood-kind-of-film that is being talked about right now, but nothing concrete," said Newton-John.

The 61-year-old stars in the recently-opened film “Score: A Hockey Musical,” in which Newton-John portrays Hope Gordon, the mother of a young hockey star. She appears opposite Canadian singer Marc Jordan, who plays Hope’s husband.

Jordan credited his wife, Amy Sky, a producer of Newton-John’s previous album, to convince the singer to make a return to the movies. Newton John recalled that Sky "called me and said Marc was doing this musical and there was a part for his wife and would I be interested in reading for it."

"I love to do fun things and it seemed like a fun project and who knew we'd end up opening the Toronto film festival," she said.

In addition to her singing career, which has yielded hits such as  "I Honestly Love You" and "Physical,"  Newton-John had previously appeared in the films “Grease” (1978) and  “Xanadu” (1980). Most recently, Newton-John guested on the FOX hit show “Glee.”

Her new album, “Grace and Gratitude Renewed,” is due for release later this month.
