After being the bad man in 'Krrish 3', Vivek Oberoi has took up the villain role yet again; but this time for Hollywood feature.
According to latest reports from Sony Pictures India, the B-Town actor has been selected to be the Hindi voice of the main villain Max Dillon aka Electro in this year's biggest Hollywood blockbuster 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' which releases on May 1st. In the original English version, Electro is played by Oscar winning actor Jamie Foxx.
Vivek, who is a huge fan of the Spider-Man comics and films, confirmed the news and shared that he is very excited to be part of its latest movie series, "(I) am thrilled to see that the franchise has just grown bigger and better with each film. I have been tremendously excited for The Amazing Spider-Man 2's release ever since the first trailer came out, and when I was offered to voice Electro for the Hindi version, I was immediately interested in this unique opportunity. Max Dillon/Electro is an immensely fascinating and complex character and it will be interesting to face off with Spider-Man. After my turn as super villain Kaal in Krrish 3, whose 250 crore box office was incredibly gratifying, this is just the icing on the cake."
'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' releases in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on May 1st.
Added Vivek: "I have already begun dubbing and am looking forward to the film's release!"
While Kercy Daruwala, MD of Sony Pictures India, said, "We are very happy to have Vivek on board for the Hindi version of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The Hindi version is a large part of our box office and it's a very important role that Vivek will be playing in its success. Vivek has played a villain so brilliantly in the past and is already a familiar face in the genre. Kids in particular love him."
