"I am glad to say that the film is the best among all 3D films you have seen till now. A lot of top Hollywood directors have also said that they have never seen 3D used in this way before. Ang Lee has used 3D poetically and delicately...cinema at it's best, 3D at it's best," the 49-year-old told reporters Monday at a press conference here in Mumbai.
Ang Lee won Oscar for the best director for his 2005 film "Brokeback Mountain" and before that his 2000 movie "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" won the golden statuette for the best foreign language film.
Irrfan Khan describes Lee as a "very special director".
"He is one of the top most directors of the world. Not because he makes big budget films, but because his films affect the minds and hearts of the audience," he said.
Based on Canadian author Yann Martel's Booker Prize winning novel "Life of Pi", the 3D fantasy adventure film follows the journey of an Indian boy from Pondicherry who after a shipwreck in the Pacific Ocean survives 227 days stranded on a boat with a tiger.
Meanwhile, talking about his future plans, Irrfan Khan expressed a desire to give unforgettable movies to fans.
"I wish to increase my experience as an actor and entertain my audience. I want to keep giving my audience such cinema that they will never forget. I want to give films that keep giving them something to think about for several days."
"I don't want to give 'use and throw' films which you forget the instance you leave a theatre. My wish is to do films which become an experience for you and me," he added.
