Accomplished actor Irrfan Khan will spend the rest of this year living out of a suitcase as he will be shooting for two films – Jurassic World and Piku. This week he leaves for the US to begin shooting for Colin Trevorrow-directed fourth part of the phenomenal Jurassic Park franchise. The film is to be shot in Hawaai and New Orleans.
“It’s a brief schedule to begin with, though my role is anything but brief. At the moment all I can tell you on record is that it’s a pivotal role. I am very excited about the project. It’s the second American global franchise after Spiderman that I am part of,” said Irrfan, adding that he did not share the Indian audience’s disappointment over the length of his role in Spiderman.
He said, “It isn’t as if my role was reduced for ulterior reasons. Sometimes a particular character’s footage suffers for factors like the film’s length, etc. I was very happy to be part of Spiderman.
“Come to think of it, there have been very few projects that I’ve regretted doing. And those were taken up because I needed the money. Over a period of time I’ve realized I don’t need too much money to keep body and soul alive. However, now my sons have other goals and priorities. They do ask for things, which I never needed or coveted. I never say no to their demands. My movies pay me well enough to keep my family happy.”
