Called the "Afghan Bruce Lee," Alizada looks very much like Hong Kong action film star and martial artist Bruce Lee.

He became interested in martial arts at a very young age. However, he had to study Chinese Kung Fu by himself as his family could not afford professional training due to financial difficulties.

"It was when I was around eight years old that I saw a Bruce Lee movie for the first time. I became fascinated with those movies, which served as a drive for me to learn martial arts," Alizada said.

Alizada has studied Kung Fu for more than 10 years.

The 23-year-old caused shock online a few years ago when he posted a video named "Bruce Lee appears in Afghanistan" on Facebook.

Alizada has now appeared in two films, with one shot in Azerbaijan and the other in India.

"I want to star in a film produced by Afghanistan when I gain international popularity," Alizada said.
