Just because of my devotional worship of Bruce Lee I am going to make his biopic and release it same time as Shekar kapur's authorised one? Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) May 8, 2017
I have nothing against Shekar kapoor who I admire immensely but it's just my obsessive fascination for Bruce Lee https://t.co/UQIO2cA5DH? Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) May 8, 2017
Sharing a link of his article on Bruce Lee in a tweet, Ram Gopal Varma said that he feels he can do justice to the biopic as he 'tremendously' knows more about the martial arts legend than his daughter Shannon and wife Linda Lee.
Meanwhile, Little Dragon, a film backed by Chinese investors, will explore the formative years of Bruce Lee in 1950s Hong Kong, reports Hollywood Reporter. The film will be co-scripted and produced by Lee's daughter Shannon Lee, who runs Bruce Lee Entertainment. The company is dedicated to promote and protect Lee's legacy and ideas.
"The film will be a contemporary take on Bruce Lee who, aside from being considered the most gifted and famous martial artist of all time, is now accepted as a major philosopher in his own right. It is important that audiences today can relate their own lives to the journey of Bruce Lee, who manages to tap into his inner wisdom and harness his true destiny before it's too late," Hollywood Reporter quoted Shekhar Kapur as saying.
Meanwhile, Ram Gopal Varma's Sarkar 3, starring Amitabh Bachchan, is scheduled to release in theatres on May 12.
