Last month a “Masrani Global” viral site was launched for director Colin Trevorrow’s hugely anticipated ‘Jurassic World,’ providing us with a tonne of new information about Islar Nublar, InGen’s new corporate owner Masrani Global, Simon Masrani (Irrfan Khan), ‘Jurassic Park’ character Dr. Henry Wu (B.D. Wong), and the titular theme park. During a recent chat with The Hollywood Reporter, Irrfan Khan had he following to add about his character: “I’m playing the park owner, a very flamboyant person….He’s trying to entertain the world with good intentions, but sometimes being flamboyant doesn’t mean having much wisdom.”
Irrfan Khan also talked what people can expect to be different about ‘Jurassic World’ from the original: “For sure it will have more vibe. It’s the Jurassic World of these times, with all the technical experimentation. It has now become a fully-bloomed dinosaur amusement park. Dinosaurs in this film will definitely be scary, but this is not a horror film, so it will be like a scary adventure.”
