Puthiya Bruce Lee' to introduce Lee's doppelganger
Upcoming Tamil actioner Puthiya Bruce Lee is not a tribute to legendary martial arts fighter Bruce Lee, but the film will introduce his doppelganger being played by debutant, also named Bruce.
"I have incorporated the two most important facets from Bruce Lee's life, which are discipline and courage in my story. We wanted someone who looked like the legend himself and we were lucky to find Bruce," the film's director A. Sonai told IANS.
"It's a very commercial story of a young guy from a village who moves to the city and helps his uncle in some real estate property problems with his fighting skills. The action in the film is inspired by several of Bruce Lee's films," he added.
Sonai said the stunts in the film will be its biggest highlight.
"Bruce is a trained martial artist. He is a double black belt hold, and, therefore, the action will be very realistic. I'm sure the audience will love it," he added.
Suresh Narang has been roped in to play the antagonist.
