Bruce Lee's doppelganger is forced to hide from the Taliban, fearing deathPictolic
Bruce Lee's double is hiding from the Taliban (an organization banned in Russia). The Afghan is trying to fly to the UK to continue his acting career there. 28-year-old Abbas Alizada says that the Taliban stabbed his training partner, so he now fears for his life. A man changes his place of residence every two days, because if he is captured, he faces the death penalty.
The Afghan actor Abbas Alizada wants to get out of his native country, which was captured by the Taliban. He is sure that he is in mortal danger. Fanatics from the Taliban hate the Hazaras, to which Abbas belongs, so he asks for asylum for himself and his family in the UK.
Previously, the stuntman surprised users of social networks with videos of his workouts. He did push-ups on two fingers and did other tricks. But after the Taliban seized power in August, Abbas can no longer train.
Most of all, the actor admires the film "The Way of the Dragon", with his idol Bruce Lee in the title role.
London lawyer Mahtab Aziz, who is now helping Abbas, said that the stuntman starred in four films about martial arts. Abbas also got a role in a Hollywood action movie, but because of the pandemic, he could not go abroad. The British human rights activist says that the Taliban are very unpredictable, and can easily kill the actor.
The Pakistani authorities may give permission to Abbas and his family to move within a few days. But the actor wants to get to the UK, because there he will be able to continue his career in cinema and surprise the world, like his legendary idol.
Meanwhile, Afghan women are protesting against the Taliban's "dress code." A challenge is currently taking place on the Internet with the tag #donottouchmyclothes — "Don't touch my clothes".
