Tom Holland’s reaction is an accurate representation of what he’s seeing.

For Indian fans of Spider-Man, the mere mention of the Marvel superhero’s name conjures certain tunes and images in our minds. Desi Spider-Man – with his uninhibited dancing, unique fighting style that utilises utensils, and tendency to stalk his lover in fields – is unforgettable, and unavoidable. And what did an Indian interviewer show Spider-Man star Tom Holland when he met him? Desi Spider-Man.

Spider-Man: Homecoming opened to massive box office numbers, and enthusiastic reviews on July 7. On July 5, Comic Con India posted a video interview with Holland, conducted by East India Comedy’s Sahil Shah.

Sahil told him about the character’s popularity in India, and how there is an official, Marvel version of the superhero who swings across the Mumbai skyline in a dhoti.

But this was all done to prepare Holland for the real deal – the infamous Bhojpuri Spider-Man video.

He is justifiably bemused. And then, he his made to recite the evergreen lyrics, “Eespiderman, eespiderman, tune churaya mera dil ka chain.”

The video became a popular viral sensation after being viewed millions of times. It is a dance sequence which is a part of a film.
