Mumbai, June 15 (IANS) Acclaimed Indian actor Irrfan Khan considers the success of “Jurassic World” a “blessing”.
He plays the role of Simon Masrani, the owner of the dinosaur park in the Hollywood film.
“The success of ‘Jurrasic World’ has come out as blessing for all of us. I am overjoyed with the response that the film has received in India and abroad. I thank everyone who has contributed to this film and made it such a large success,” Irrfan said in a statement.
“Jurassic World” is said to have minted a global collection of over $200 million.
The story unfolds 22 years after the events of “Jurassic Park” in a fully functional resort on Isla Nublar that sees more than 20,000 visitors a day. The new park includes a biological preserve, a safari, a zoo, and a theme park type setting and of course unprecedented close access to real, living dinosaurs.
“Jurassic World”, which also stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, is set on Isla Nublar island, the same location as “Jurassic Park”. It is a direct sequel to the runaway 1993 hit.
