New Delhi, October 22 (ANI): Iconic kungfu master Bruce Lee was afraid of cockroaches as a kid, according to a TV series on his life.
The series, entitled The Legend of Bruce Lee, also reveals that the martial artist killed some cockroaches, and strung them together as a necklace, to overcome his fears.
Unlike most other films or TV series on Lee, the show has plenty of scenes showing Lee losing bouts to his opponents.
“Most people only know a Bruce Lee who was a super hero, someone who always won. But few understand that behind the glorious moments was also a vulnerable man,” says Hong Kong actor Chan Kwok Kwan who plays the icon.
The series also shows Lee to be as a funny and tender boyfriend, and later a loving husband and father, reports the China Daily.
As regards Lee’’s controversial death at the age of 32, the series shows that he died of overwork and the abuse of stimulants. (ANI)
