This phrase was quite common after Bruce Lee's "Enter the Dragon" became popular.
It is used to describe skinny, malnourished, underweight people who think they can fight like Bruce Lee, after going to a few martial arts classes.

The phrase "choose lee" means "sucked it" in hindi.

Usage

The first time I heard this phrase was from a rickshaw puller - there was a street fight going on and a Choose Lee type let out blood-curdling shriek and at the same time aimed a full-blooded round-house karate kick at his opponent. The other guy calmly stepped back and dodged the kick. Choose Lee, his body weight unable to counter- balance the centrifugal force generated by his kick, fell on his back and hit his head on the road and knocked himself out silly!
And, the rickshaw puller said, "Bruce Lee ko to aap logon ne filmon me dekha hoga... ab inse miliye, unke chhote bhai Choose Lee!"

That's how critics of Bangalore's drinking culture call the city what with the number of bars and wine stores peppered throughout the city, sometimes dozens of them in a short stretch mere meters from one another.

Usage

Critics also parody the famous Rafi-Shammi Kapur Hindi song "Bar bar dekho, hazar bar dekho" ( Look, bar and bar, a thousand bars.) as fitting the city's image; once garden city Bangalore turned Bar-galore.
