RGV was again found meddling in other people's business. *eye roll*
Ram Gopal Varma seems set to dethrone Kamal R Khan as the most annoying element on Twitter. Just moments after the news of Shekhar Kapur directing the official biopic on Bruce Lee's life broke, RGV took to Twitter to announce that he, too, will make a movie on the same subject. And if that wasn't enough, he even went on to challenge Shekhar Kapur stating that he will release the film on the same day as the authorised biopic.
“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,” he tweeted.

“I have nothing against Shekar kapoor who I admire immensely but it's just my obsessive fascination for Bruce Lee. Inspite of closeness of family and brilliance of @shekharkapur i believe only I can do justice to do his biopic. I know tremendously more about Bruce Lee than his daughter Shannon Lee, his wife Linda Lee and @shekharkapur.”

He even shared a link to one of his Facebook posts from yesterday, titled Sex and Bruce Lee, where he starts off admitting that Bruce Lee is the one and only he, apparently, loved more than sex. Okay.
Now that RGV has made such ambitious claims on social media, we're really excited to see how the biopic pans out. The only actor we can imagine fitting into Bruce Lee's large shoes in the Indian rendition is Tiger Shroff. But going by RGV's past record with the martial arts enthusiast (who he compared to a transgender), we wonder if he will set his difference aside and make amends. For Bruce's sake, i.e.
