Late actor Irrfan Khan is regarded as one of the finest actors in the Bollywood film industry. While acting seemed to have come naturally to him, Irrfan Khan was known for portraying versatile roles on the big screens, be it dacoit or a gangster. Such was his talent, that he ended up representing India globally with his performance in several Hollywood films including Jurassic Park. Now, the release date for Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World Dominion, the sixth movie in the science fiction franchise is fast approaching and the makers are leaving no stone unturned to brace audiences for its premiere.

Speaking of which, during one of the latest press interviews for the film, the lead actor Chris Pratt recalled his experience of working with late actor Irrfan Khan. For those unaware, the legendary star essayed the role of Simon Masrani, the CEO of the Masrani Corporation and the owner of Jurassic World theme park in the franchise. 

'Just such an elegant man': Chriss Pratt

As reported by ANI, Chris Pratt spoke highly of Irrfan Khan's aura and said, "just such an elegant man... like, down to his fingernails. There was just an elegance about him. He was also so powerful. It's really a rare combination for there to be such strength in softness. And that's what I would call elegant - he could do very little and still, he would be doing so much."

He further added, "Just by his sheer presence, and his sheer charisma, that he would bring to a role. One tiny flick of an eyebrow, or one tiny little move, was so powerful."
