"I will pay tribute to Yashji by dancing with the leading ladies of his films. However, we are still in the stages of finalising things," he explained.

Khan worked with the legendary director on several films including Darr, Dil To Pagal Hai, Veer-Zaara and Chopra's last directorial venture Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

He has said Chopra was "more than just a colleague", describing him as "a close friend, a father figure and a genius".

Khan recorded a special one-hour interview with Chopra to mark the director's 80th birthday just weeks before his death.

Chopra passed away on October 21 after contracting dengue fever.

The Indian film fraternity gathered to celebrate the life and career of the esteemed filmmaker at the Mumbai premiere of Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

The 13th Zee Cine Awards ceremony will be held in Mumbai on 6 January, 2013.
