After working in Hollywood films such as Life Of Pi (2012) and The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), Irrfan Khan will also be seen in the next instalment of the Jurassic Park franchise. Jurassic World is set to release in June with two premieres — one in Los Angeles, USA, and the other in Paris, France. But the actor won’t be able to make it for the American premiere.
“I will be travelling with the cast to promote the film, but I’m not too sure if I would be able to make it to the LA premiere because of date issues,” says Irrfan.
However, he is hoping to get some time off to travel to Paris for the screening. “If given a chance, I would like to make it to Paris for the premiere. It is closer to India as compared to LA, so it will be less time-consuming. Also, I have never been to Paris for a movie premiere, and I am sure it will be a very different experience for me, ” he says.
Irrfan recently returned after his a week's trip to Budapest, where he went to prepare for his role in Hollywood venture Inferno. He says the visit was "fruitful" as he even met actor Tom Hanks and is now looking forward to working with the team.
"My trip to Budapest was very fruitful. I went there for a week. It was good to meet the entire cast of the film. Tom and I along with the director and other cast members did some script reading and I also got to almost finalise the look and feel of my character," Irrfan said.
