Chinese actress Zhao Wei held an opening ceremony in Beijing, marking the start of filming for her second directorial work No Other Love.

The award-winning actress says this will be her second collaboration with renowned screenwriter Li Qiang, three years after her directorial debut So Young.

No Other Love will portray a plant expert, who recaptures the courage to start an adventure of love with a middle-age scholar.

Rising to fame for starring as Xiaoyanzi in the hit TV series My Fair Princess, Zhao is regarded by many as a "national idol."

After performing in many box-office smash hits and gaining several top acting awards, the actress shifted her career focus to directing in 2012.

Her directorial debut, based on a best-selling novel, became a major success at China's box office, grossing over $118 million. It was made on a tiny budget of only $5 million.

The leading cast of No Other Love has yet to be announced, but some reports indicate actress Yuan Quan and director-actor Leon Dai may take the major roles in the film.
