Dehradun: Dev Raturi, 46, from Kemriya Saurvillage in Tehri Garhwal district of Uttarakhand, a diehard Bruce Lee fan who wanted to follow the footsteps of his childhood hero, once auditioned for a role in a Hindi movie in Mumbai in front of Puneet Issar (Duryodhan in Mahabharat) in 1998 but failed.
