Directed by Ang Lee and also starring Tabu and debutant Suraj Sharma, Life of Pi was just one of the many Hollywood films that the actor starred in. It received four Oscars, and grossed over $600 million worldwide.

In an interview, Irrfan had spoken warmly about working with Lee. “I’m really fortunate that I got to work with Ang Lee. He is a wonderful filmmaker. It is fascinating as an actor to find a director who effectively has a whole world inside of him. Ang has a strong vision and he wants to bring that world and that vision to the audience. There are very few directors who put themselves in the line of fire as he does.”

Irrfan had added, “He is one of those directors who do not separate the films they are making from their experience of life. He lives the movies he makes; he takes the journey along with Pi. Ang Lee makes the kind of film that will be remembered fifty years from now because of the subject matter and because of the brilliant way in which he tells the story.”
