Irrfan Khan meets ‘wonderful’ Tom Hanks in Budapest
Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan is back after 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 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 in a statement.
Meeting the “Forrest Gump” actor Tom was an experience in itself for Irrfan, who has earlier starred in international projects like Slumdog Millionaire, Life of Pi and The Amazing Spider-Man.
“I personally feel Tom is a wonderful actor and amazing person. I met him for a brief time but I shall look forward to work with him once the shooting starts in couple of weeks,” he added.
Inferno will be directed by Ron Howard.
