Irrfan's small but shining Hollywood filmography includes films like 'The Namesake', 'Life of Pi' and 'Jurassic World' and the 49-year-old actor will be next seen with Tom Hanks in 'Inferno'.

"I didn't feel the character offered to me gave me much scope. So I said 'No'; though Scarlett Johansson is an actor I would have loved to share screen space with," Irrfan said in an interview.

Director Ron Howard's 'Inferno' is an adaptation of  2013 mystery thriller novel by American author Dan Brown.

The film is the sequel to 'Angels & Demons', and stars Hanks, reprising his role as Robert Langdon, along with Felicity Jones, Omar Sy, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Ben Foster.
