But now his back in his own self titled film The Rise Of Bush Knife Bobby. Which tells a different origin story compared to its comical predecessor.
Written and Directed by newcomer Renaldo Kell and Produced by Bruce Gounder along with executive producers like Vischal Singh and Deshan Maharaj, we leap into a dark and gritty world where a criminal organisation called The Skulls are infesting durban city with drugs and prostitution.
William "Bobby" Singh is a hard working man trying to provide for his family until his pulled into this dark society.
But after a tragic incident his counter part rises and Bush Knife Bobby becomes vengeance for those who cannot defend themselves.
The film takes on another aspect that we did not see before. Besides a dark and gritty version of the icon, it is said to be made for a mature audience. So don't expect something corny. Expect a lot of violence in this rendition.
In the cast are three american actors who put Bush Knife Bobby on the international map. Joel Stephens, Donna Brook and Emily Browning have signed on to the south african film.
Still in the process of getting sponsorships and a budget this is one local film to explode on cinemas.
Production is schedule for october/november on this gritty film. So for updates trailers visit there facebook page, www.facebook.com/bushknifebobbyreturn
