A press conference to promote the release of the music video for director Chen Kaige's biopic 'Mei Lanfang' kicked off in Mei Lanfang Grand Theatre in Beijing on Tuesday afternoon, the sohu.com reports.

The leading duo, popular Chinese mainland actress Zhang Ziyi and Hong Kong actor Leon Lai showed up for the event.

Zhang joined hands with Leon to record the title song 'You Feel My Love' in September.

Zhang expressed thanks to Leon for his help in shooting the video. She said, though not good at singing, she sang with heart and hoped to express her innermost feelings. The actress recalled that when she sang the song, memories of the movie ran through her mind.

Leon Lai, who, a pop singer himself, plays late master of Peking opera Mei Lanfang, directed and produced the video. It is his debut work as a director. He wished that the video would be as refined as the movie itself.

The promotional music video for movie "Mei Lanfang" premiered globally Tuesday afternoon, which also marks the official start of the promo activities for this year's much-anticipated blockbuster.

The film is scheduled to hit theaters in December.
