Since the trailer debuted, interest in the upcoming film “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” has soared. Fans are eager to return to the Spider-Man universe in 2021 following the huge success of “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” This moment is particularly significant for India since it marks the big-screen debut of Pavitr Prabhakar, our very own Indian Spider-Man.
Shubman Gill, a cricket player, will lend his voice to the Hindi and Punjabi versions of the movie, giving Pavitr’s role even greater significance to Indian viewers. Gill has become quite the draw for cricket fans because to his batting prowess, and as Pavitr Prabhakar in “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse,” he is now ready to win over all cricket fans in India. Shubman Gill, who admits that Spider-Man is his favourite superhero, has made a significant entrance into the Spider-Man universe. He becomes the first sports figure to provide a voiceover for a movie, and that too for one of the most well-known Hollywood properties.
Speaking about his experience he said, “I have grown up watching Spider-Man, and he is one of the most relatable superheroes. Since the movie will be debuting the Indian Spider-Man for the first time on screen, getting to be the voice of our Indian Spider-Man, Pavitr Prabhakar, in the Hindi and Punjabi languages was such a remarkable experience for me. Already, I feel superhuman. I am eagerly anticipating the release of this movie.”
Shony Panjikaran, GM of Sony Pictures Releasing International (SPRI) said, “June 2 will indeed be a momentous occasion for all Spider-Man fans across the country, and we are sure that everyone will shower the same love on this film as they did on ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’.
