Newcomer, Arja Lee simply looks dashing doing the running pose, eh?
We caught up with him at gala premiere of Anu Dalam Botol, (literally means "Dick in A Bottle") but the word ANU is reduced to three little dots due to censorship reason.
Arja Lee plays Ruby/ Rubidin, a man who had
his dick cut off sex change operation to "surprise" his bisexual lover.
Dubbed the Malay Brokeback Mountain, this movie is one of the highly anticipated and controversial Malaysian movie todate. FYI, this movie is based on a true story.
It is the first full length Malay film to feature two leading men in love. :)
Having said that, Anu Dalam Botol is not the first gay movie made in Malaysia. There is a short movie called Comolot which feature a young Remy Ishak, before he found fame.

The movie is directed by Khir Rahman (middle) which is recently seen as a tattoed pirate in the Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa.
