There is buzz in the media that Irrfan, who received applauds for his film ‘Life of Pi’, has been approached to play the role of Patel, the billionaire owner of new Jurassic Park.
While initial reports had hinted that Irrfan’s role will be a negative one, recent rumours claim that the actor would play the role of the park owner.
The fourth edition in the `Jurrasic Park` franchise, which tentatively releases in 2015, is being produced by Spielberg and directed by Colin Trevorrow.
The actor, who has so far been part of some of the biggest Hollywood productions like `Slumdog Millionare`,
`The Amazing Spiderman` and `Life Of Pi`, is apparently in talks with the makers since last year. Irrfan, who impressed the audience with his performance in ‘The Lunchbox’, has not yet confirmed the news but stated that an announcement in this regard would be made by the production house.
