Afghan "Bruce Lee" talks about trying to escape the Taliban

Bruce Lee’s Afghan actor doppelganger Abbas Alizadeh spoke of fears for his life and attempts to escape after members of the Taliban (banned in Russia) terrorist movement stabbed his training partner to death. Reported by The Sun.

The 28-year-old man, who is the doppelganger of legendary Hong Kong and American film actor and martial artist Bruce Lee, posts videos of his workouts online, including two-finger push-ups. However, he can no longer train after the August coup in Afghanistan.

He said the Taliban despise the Hazaras – Shiites of mixed origin living in central Afghanistan – one of which he is. Because of this, Alizadeh worries that he may become their next victim and constantly moves, not staying in one place for more than two days. The actor wants to flee Afghanistan with his family and move to the UK to “become the next Bruce Lee” and act in films.

Earlier, the acting foreign minister in the interim government of Afghanistan, Amir Khan Mottaki, warned the US that any attempts by Washington to weaken the Taliban’s power could cause “problems for the people.”
