Irrfan Khan to head for Paris premiere of ‘Jurassic World’

Irrfan Khan is looking forward to the Paris premiere of his upcoming Hollywood project Jurassic World where he plays a very interesting role.

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 added.

The movie, fourth in the Jurassic Park franchise, will see Irrfan in the role of Simon Masrani, the CEO of the Masrani Corporation and the owner of Jurassic World. “It is a very interesting role. It is about the conflict about the morality of science and human tendency to market it. The film’s premiere is in Paris, which I might attend,” said Khan.

The actor was recently in Budapest to prepare for his role in Tom Hanks-starrer Inferno, which is based on Dan Brown’s novel of the same name. “It is a very international cast. There is Tom Hanks, Felicity (Jones), Omar (Sy) and me. I was there for the preparation and had a great time. I tried on clothes and we had reading scenes. I have a very good feel about this film. I love my part and Ron (Howard) is fantastic. So is Tom, he is such a warm actor,” Irrfan said.

The actor will next be seen in Vishal Bhardwaj’s production and Nishikant Kamat’s Madaari, which is a thriller.

Irrfan had to let go of Ridley Scott’s film “The Martian” for “Piku” but the actor is hopeful that he gets another chance to work with the Hollywood director.

“I was hoping to do The Martian and Piku but the schedule did not permit. I hope to work with Ridley Scott again. It was a second miss as I was earlier supposed to work with him in Body of Lies but that also did not work out.”
