Bruce Shan, a look-alike of Bruce Lee, has been brought on board for a new film titled Pudhiya Brucelee. Directed by A. Sonai, the film has newcomer Raziya as the lead heroine. Talking about the film the director says, “I am a great fan of Bruce Lee and wanted to make an action film with his style. When I saw Shan, I decided to make my dream project and the additional advantage being the former is a double black belt exponent in Karate.”
Talking about the story, he says, “The hero loses his parents in a mishap and comes to the city from the village to his uncle’s house. When his uncle gets caught in a land grab racket, how the hero saves them using his brawn forms the crux. Since it is an action film, I have given utmost importance to stunts. There are five stunt blocks by stunt master ‘Thriller Shekar’, which have been canned with Bruce Lee style of fights. Since Shan is also trained in martial arts, he has given his best output.” Mumbai actors Suresh Narang and Jitender Hooda play the villains.
