Joining the film's cast and reprising his role as fan favourite Dr Ishiro Serizawa is none other than Ken Watanabe. The actor popularly known for his portrayal of the billionaire Saito from Inception was completely awed by the legendary god-sized monster Godzilla.

Godzilla's unmistakable roar, in particular, was music to Ken Watanabe's ears. "I get so excited when he lets out his roar," he says. "It's very strong, like a scream, but you feel sadness in it as well. It's like he's scorning humanity for our foolishness."
