Gill is a household name for cricket fans all around the country thanks to his enormous popularity and superb batting abilities. And now, in "Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse," he is all grown up as Pavitr Prabhakar. 

Shubman Gill is notable for being the first sports figure to donate his voice to a movie, much less one of the biggest Hollywood series. I have grown up watching Spider-Man, and he is one of the most relatable superheroes, the actor recently discussed the experience of playing the Indian Spider-Man. Being chosen to voice our Indian Spider-Man, Pavitr Prabhakar, in the Hindi and Punjabi languages for the film, which will feature the Spider-Man from India for the first time
on screen, was such an incredible experience for me. I already feel above human. I'm looking forward to seeing this movie when it comes out.
