Tiger Shroff on lending voice to SpiderMan: Homecoming - 'I can do what he does without cables'
For as long as he can remember, Tiger Shroff has wanted to portray the character of Spider-Man on screen. His dream was recently realised — partially at least. Shroff lent his voice to the Hindi dubbing of the latest movie in the Spider-Man franchise — Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Having said that, Shroff feels that he is already the perfect fit for playing the character on screen as well and not just in the capacity of dubbing for the superhero. “Most of what I do physically is what Spider-Man does too, only I do them without cables. Add some VFX and I can be Spider-Man too," said Shroff according to a Mumbai Mirror report.
Shroff also seems to have gone the extra mile in his dubbing efforts to get the dialogue delivery for the superhero just right. “As Peter Parker, I could speak normally, but when I turned into Spider-Man. I’d wear a mask,” Shroff stated according to the same Mumbai Mirror report.
"I can't express my excitement to be the voice of my childhood superhero Spider-Man in Hindi. I have grown up watching Spider-Man movies and I must say that he is the one superhero character I have always wished to play. I am glad that Sony Pictures Entertainment, India approached me for this. I can promise, Spider-Man: Homecoming is a fun, action-filled roller coaster ride and is unlike any other Spider-Man film you may have seen earlier. It is hands down the best epic entertainer this summer. I just cant wait for the film's release and I hope audiences like me as Spidey's voice in Hindi," Tiger said in an earlier statement when asked about his feelings on dubbing for Spider-Man.
The English version of the movie stars Tom Holland in the lead as teenage Spider-Man, while Michael Keaton plays the villain Vulture.
Directed by Jon Watts the movie will release in India on July 7 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
