Actor Vivek Oberoi, who has lent his voice in the Hindi version of Hollywood film ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′, says he is not over eager to do Hollywood films and will essay only quality roles.

“I am not crazy about doing Hollywood films. I am not interested to do a five-minute role in a film which is not exciting to me. For me, quality of role is important and if a role excites me I do it,” Vivek told PTI.

Vivek says he agreed to dub for the character Electro in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ as he has been a huge fan of the web-casting superhero.

“I have always been a huge fan of the Spider-Man comics and films. Max Dillon/Electro is an immensely fascinating and complex character and it will be interesting to face off with Spider-Man,” he said.

Vivek said dubbing was not new for him. “I have been a dubbing artist before becoming an actor. I got trained for it. Dubbing for a film where you have not performed is different. It is challenging to dub in other language and other character. But it was a funny experience,” he added.

In the original version of the film, Electro is played by Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx.

Vivek has played villainous roles in films like ‘Company’, ‘Shoot Out at Lokhandwala’, ‘Rakht Charitra’, ‘Krrish 3′.

“There is no fascination towards villain roles. I like playing characters that are different. We all have an element of grey in us I like to show that on screen,” Vivek said, adding ‘Gabbar Singh’, which was immortalised by Amjad Khan, is his all-time favourite character.

The film ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ starring Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man and Emma Stone as his lady love, will release in India on May 1.
