Will we be seeing Sharla Cheung on our screens again?

It's been 16 years since the Hong Kong actress last appeared in Chinese movie The Sixth Sense.

The 51-year-old, who relocated to Beijing, recently visited her family in Hong Kong over the Labour Day holidays.

And her star quality hasn't diminished over the years, as she still drew eyes while she was out and about with a friend at Causeway Bay.

When asked by Apple Daily whether she would be making a comeback, she gave a seemingly positive response.

"I still have to work anyway. It takes a lot of time to learn and practise Buddhism, but my senior (who is also Sharla's boyfriend) said that I can do all of them together due to the worldly dharma law."

"It means that you can do perfectly well in everything you do, then will it all be perfect. So I can still work."

Since she bowed out of the entertainment industry, Sharla has been visiting monasteries in China and listening to Buddhist scriptures.

Before fans get too excited though, she didn't confirm that she will be returning to showbiz.

The beautiful actress gained popularity in the 1990s when she starred with Stephen Chow in numerous films.

Her most notable works include Hong Kong classics such as Royal Tramp, Fight Back to School, Fist of Fury 1991 II and Kung Fu Cult Master.

She also became the dream lover of many male fans with her role as Yee Mong in All for the Winner.
