Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is just a day away from release and excitement around Quentin Tarantino's next big film has been palpable. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie in leading roles, OUATINH has created a huge buzz in the West since the film's trailer dropped. The film has, however, been mired in bit of a controversy since Bruce Lee’s daughter, Shannon Lee spoke about his negative portrayal in the film.

Addressing these statements, Tarantino during a presser spoke about Bruce Lee's character in the film which is played by actor Mike Moh. He said, "Bruce Lee was kind of an arrogant guy. The way he was talking, I didn’t just make a lot of that up. I heard him say things like that, to that effect. If people are saying, ‘Well he never said he could beat up Muhammad Ali,’ well yeah, he did. Not only did he say that, but his wife, Linda Lee, said that in her first biography I ever read. She absolutely said that,” the director said.

The film shows Lee swaggering around the set of “Green Hornet,” denigrating boxer Muhammad Ali and picking a street fight with stuntman Cliff Booth played by actor Brad Pitt. In July, Lee's daughter Sharon had told Variety, "He was continuously marginalized and treated like kind of a nuisance of a human being by white Hollywood, which is how he’s treated in the film by Quentin Tarantino." 

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is slated to release in India on August 15, 2019, i.e. Independence Day 2019.
