London, Apr 7 (UNI) Pop sensation Madonna is planning to adopt a baby girl from India, according to reports.

The Queen of Pop , who already has an adopted son from Africa has given up the search to adopt another one from that country, due to frustrating red tape. Instead, after enjoying a New Year holiday in India, she has decided to focus her adoption search there.

Sources close to the singer said she would fly out to adopt a baby once she has finished promoting her new album, Hard Candy.

The report also says that the 49 -year-old pop icon was convinced to adopt an Indian baby by Bollywood choreographer Sandip Soparrkar, who has also adopted an Indian baby.

''We spoke about how there are so many children in India who need homes,'' Sandip said.

However, Madonna's husband Guy Ritchie was thought to be against the idea of adopting another child but was eventually persuaded by his wife. She already has three kids -- a girl and two boys-- including David, the one adopted from Africa.

Madonna's adoption of David Banda in October 2006 caused a storm of protest after it was claimed she used her fame to fast-track normal adoption procedures in Malawi.

Media reports also suggested that David's father was unhappy with the agreement and under the impression his son would return to Malawi when he was older.
