The movie based on Dan Brown’s novel of the same name is being directed by Ron Howard. As Irrfan began his shooting schedule, Hanks welcomed him aboard with a sweet message, which the “Piku” star shared on twitter.
“My journey of @infernothemovie began with a captain’s note @tomhanks,” Irrfan posted alongside the Hanks’ note, which read, “This will be most pleasant movie to make, I think, provided you and I have a few more scenes together! If not, we will just have to save the world as is!”.
