Mumbai: Actor Vivek Oberoi will be the voice of the main villain Max Dillon aka Electro in the Hindi version of `The Amazing Spider-Man 2`.
In the original version of the film, Electro is played by Oscar winning actor Jamie Foxx.
"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," said Kercy Daruwala, MD Sony Pictures India.
Vivek said he agreed to dub for the voice of Electro because he has been a huge fan of the web-casting superhero.
"I will be Electro`s voice in the Hindi version of `The Amazing Spider-Man 2`. I have always been a huge fan of the Spider-Man comics and films. Max Dillon/Electro is an immensely fascinating and complex character and it will be interesting to face off with Spider-Man," said Vivek, who played a negative role in his last Bollywood release `Krrish 3`.
