Ram Gopal Varma announced the release date of Ladki: Enter The Girl Dragon starring martial artiste turned actress Pooja Bhalekar as July 15. The filmmaker also revealed that the film will have the widest release simultaneously for any Indian movie, stating that the Chinese version of the film itself will release on over 40000 screens in China itself.
The film is also available in Telugu at RGV's strongholds in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, in addition to Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada.“It's my most ambitious project to date. I was a tremendous fan of Bruce Lee since I was a kid, and I was also into martial arts. But on July 15, I will accomplish my dream and distribute the film worldwide. I also shot the film in China and used Chinese actors, which is nothing short of a dream come true,” RGV adds.
“The maverick filmmaker even took a big leap by signing on a martial artist and training her in acting rather than casting an actor and teaching them basic skills. Pooja struck me as an awesomely talented personality and has the glamour element to add to her wonderful martial arts repertoire.
It was a no-brainer for me to cast her,” says RGV.Pooja is thrilled to be the one who is manifesting RGV's pursuit to make a film that perhaps is a cross between Rangeela and Enter The Dragon, Bruce Lee's work. "It is a film about a girl who has to choose between her real love and her relentless pursuit of her love for Bruce Lee. I am glad that RGV sir chose me to make his dream of making a film on Bruce Lee‘s philosophy with me playing a fan of Bruce Lee “ says Pooja Bhalekar.
