Only I can do justice to Bruce Lee's biopic 

RGV also says he will release it the same time as Shekhar Kapur's movie

Published: 10th May 2017

After news that Shekhar Kapur will co-produce and direct an authorised biopic of Bruce Lee, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma has said he will make a movie too due to his "obsessive fascination" with the martial arts legend and actor. RGV also said he will release it at the same time as Kapur's movie, which is titled Little Dragon.

Varma, on Monday, tweeted "Just because of my devotional worship of Bruce Lee I am going to make his biopic and release it same time as Shekhar Kapur's authorised one. I have nothing against Shekhar Kapur, whom I admire immensely, but it's just my obsessive fascination for Bruce Lee," Sharing a link to his facebook article titled "Bruce Lee is the one and only who I loved more than sex", RGV added, "Inspite of the brilliance of Shekhar Kapur, I believe only I can do justice to his biopic."

The director claimed he knows "tremendously more" about Bruce Lee than his daughter Shannon Lee, his wife Linda Lee and Kapur. Meanwhile, Little Dragon will be a contemporary dramatisation of the 1950s Hong Kong social and political forces that shaped Bruce Lee into the most famous martial arts star and a significant modern day philosopher.
