Tomorrow is a special day for cricketer Shubman Gill and his fans as his animated film Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will be released theatrically across the country. In the upcoming action film, Shubman Gill has lent his voice to the Hindi and Punjabi versions of the film.

Speaking to news agency PTI about the development, the Indian Premier League 2023 finalist said, “It (Spiderman) was the first ever superhero movie that I watched as a kid. So, it was an instant yes when the team approached me for the dubbing."

After hitting two centuries in IPL 2023, Gill has gained massive popularity on social media and other fans. Reacting to this, he said, “All my Punjabi friends are going insane over it because they keep sending me stuff on Instagram. Their reaction was great.”

Asked whether he enjoyed dubbing in Hindi or Punjabi, Gill confessed that Punjabi was easier as it's his mother tongue. "It was easier for me to do it in Punjabi because I had done the dubbing for the Hindi version before... By the time I got to the Punjabi version, it was easy for me. Firstly, it is my mother tongue and secondly, I know which emotions to portray here," he elaborated to PTI.

Talking about his future in Bollywood, he said, “I don't know when I'll be able to give that much time (to acting). But if there is something that really excites me or I relate to, then of course, why not?"

With this film, Shubman has made a successful debut in the world of Indian showbiz. Let’s wait and see how the film performs at the box office tomorrow.
