Hollywood comic-book film Spider-man 3 is being dubbed into Bhojpuri with Ravi Kishen lending his voice to the main lead.

You heard it right. Toby Maguire will speak Bhojpuri in Ravi's voice!

"No, this isn't a nightmare. I'm dubbing for Spiderman in Bhojpuri. I'm taking out a full seven days from my busy schedule to get the dubbing right. I've never dubbed for any other actor except myself. And I've to get this right," said Ravi, who is currently busy playing Gabbar Singh in the Bhojpuri interpretation of Sholay.

The last such film from Hollywood to be dubbed in India by a star was The Incredibles in which Shah Rukh Khan gave voice to the main character.

"Well they don't call me the Shah Rukh of Bhojpuri cinema for nothing. I'm doing this because I wanted my Bhojpuri fans to enjoy Spiderman in the voice that they love - mine!

"Wait till they hear me saying Hum makad manav hain, ud kar aayab aur tohar tetuwa dabaa deb (I'm Spiderman, I'll fly to you and throttle you)."

Incidentally, Shah Rukh's son Aryan had dubbed along with papa in The Incredibles.

"Spider-man in Bhojpuri is my gift to my son and all the kids who'd be on holiday in the summer."
