Ram Charan Teja's "Bruce Lee: The Fighter" can be termed as the biggest disaster of the year. The movie had huge amount of hype and promotion. Released in over 250 screens, the film has become the second biggest Tollywood release in the US after "Baahubali". The film was expected to beat the records of hit films like "Srimanthudu" and "S/o Satyamurthy", but it failed utterly to do so.
