“The Amazing Spider-Man” director Marc Webb said he is thrilled to have Irrfan Khan play Dr. Ratha in his upcoming film.
“I have been an enormous fan of Irrfan for a very long time,” he said. “I first saw him in ‘The Namesake,’ ‘The Warrior,’ and in (the) TV series ‘In Treatment.’ For Dr. Ratha, I needed someone who projected sophistication, had lot of strength, and a very commanding presence, and Irrfan fit that bill. He is in the first half of the film and in several scenes,” Webb said in a phone interview.
The 3D reboot, starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Rhys Ifans, will release in India June 29, a week prior to its US release.
