KUALA LUMPUR: For fans of kung fu legend Bruce Lee, don’t miss the biopic Bruce Lee, My Brother starring Aarif Rahman a.k.a. Aarif Lee on tonight at 9.30pm on TV2.
Born and based in Hong Kong, the 31-year-old actor and singer of Malay, Arab and Chinese parentage, plays the iconic and legendary martial artist and actor who died on July 20, 1973 at the age of 32.
He does look like a cross between Taiwanese-American singer-actor Wang Lee Hom and the character he plays, the legendary kungfu icon Bruce Lee.
“To be honest, I don’t think I look like anybody but people like to draw comparisons between me and other stars.
“I received a lot of comments that I look like Lee Hom since I was 16. However, only a handful said I resemble Bruce Lee,” said Aarif in a news report promoting the biopic a few years ago.
Bruce Lee, My Brother also features the martial artist’s family with Tony Leung Ka Fai playing the father, Christy Chung the mother, and Jennifer Tse as his love interest.
