The film BRUCE LEE, MY BROTHER (SIU NIN LEI SIU LUNG) yesterday held its launch at the Bruce Lee statue on Tsim Sha Tsui's Avenue of Stars. Attendees included Aarif Rahman (Lee Chi Ting) who will play Bruce Lee, Jennifer Tse Ting Ting, Gong Mi, Bruce Lee's brother Robert Lee Chun Fai, director Manfred Wong (Man Jun), Bruce Lee Club president W and others. At the event Lee Chi Ting appeared as Bruce Lee and even took off his shirt and threw it on the ground like Bruce Lee to show off his abs.
However, when reporters asked Lee Chi Ting to pose like Bruce Lee, he declined because he thought he had to respect Bruce Lee. Lee Chi Ting expressed that he has already been his freestyle fighting training and working out at the gym in hopes of getting 8 pack abs. Now he has a mainly high protein, reduced carbohydrate diet. In the film Tse Ting Ting will play his girlfriend named Man Yi. Man Yi was also the name of Cho Tat Wa's daughter who once dated Bruce Lee. Lee Chi Ting said that so far he still had no idea about intimate scene. Would he like some? He awkwardly said, "Huh, I don't know how to answer that. It's pretty stressful."
Tse Ting Ting for her first film joked that she still could not tell whether she was stressed or nervous. However she would ask the Lee family for information and ask her brother Nicholas Tse Ting Fung and their parents for opinions. Gong Mi was also present yesterday. Did she feel Gong Mi resemble Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi? Ting Ting said that lately she has been with her sister in law frequently and was very certain about how she looked. She felt that they were not similar but praised Gong Mi as very pretty. Reportedly Lucas' salary was higher than hers. She said that she was not sure but she would not mind competing for the New Actor award with Lucas. Gong Mi will play Leung Sing Po's daughter Man Nui, who was a childhood friend of Bruce Lee.
In addition, Lee Chun Fai expressed that this year is Bruce Lee's 70th birthday. He was both happy and emotional. Bruce Lee fan club president W yesterday presented a Bruce Lee artwork to Lee Chun Fai. Lee Chun Fai expressed that this Bruce Lee club was founded on November 27 2005. Before Bruce Lee turned 70 this film was able to begin production, which was the best birthday present for Bruce.
