Irrfan Khan may be strring in one of Hollywood’s biggest releases, The Amazing Spider-Man, but the actor admits that he was more of a Phantom and Mandrake fan. It was only at the insistence of his two sons that he took up the new Spider-Man film.
Irrfan plays a scientist who creates the Lizard, which will take on Spider-Man in the film.
“I am fortunate that I could play a part in this myth of America; the biggest fantasy of the film world. I had a great experience working with (director) Mark Webb and (actor) Andrew Garfield. He is a promising and fantastic actor. He’s the best Spider-Man. Although it looks like an action-packed film, it has soul, which these films usually lack.The production design, the huge canvas, the shoot and the scale was an experience in itself. As an actor, you want to go through these experiences at least once in your lifetime.”
