According to Bollywood Hungama, Irrfan Khan has been offered the role of Patel in Jurassic World, but has not decided on whether or not to accept it. The reason being is that Khan is committed to another movie with Tigmanshu Dhulia, which also films at the same time Jurassic World does.
"Yes I've been offered Jurassic Park 4. But at the moment I cannot reveal any more details,"
However, Khan's friend spoke to the website and said "Khan is waiting for the script before choosing between Spielberg and Dhulia". He also tells the site that Khan's role in Jurassic World "is one of the 3 principal leads in Jurassic Park. And it's not a villain's role, as has been reported in the international press."
From this article, we know that Jurassic World would focus on three leads, Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Pratt, and Irrfan Khan.

Vincent D’Onofrio to play villain; Omar Sy joins cast

Hot off the presses, Deadline is reporting that Vincent D’Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket, Law & Order: Criminal Intent) has joined the cast of Jurassic World to play the films primary antagonist. While not much is known about his role, The Wrap reports he plays the "CFO of the Patel Corporation who projects the image of a normal family man to mask a hidden edge." It is very plausible his character will be similar to the roles of Cameron Thor (Lewis Dodgson) or Arliss Howard (Peter Ludlow). Further, Deadline hs confirmed that Irrfan Khan has joined as well, and The Wrap reports he will play "Patel, the billionaire owner of a new Jurassic Park"!
Our casting news doesn't stop here! As reported earlier, Backstage.com is stating that Omar Sy (X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Intouchables) has joined the cast as well as confirming Jake Johnson's involvement (which is corroborated by the latest issue of Empire Magazine).
With all the good news comes the bad news: Jeff Goldblum has confirmed he has not been contacted to take part in Jurassic World. Speaking to The Huffington Post, when asked about the 4th Jurassic he replied with "Yeah, and they haven't called me for "4," I know Steven Spielberg isn't directing it ..." This seems to contradict early rumors about an cameo from Ian Malcolms character, though anything is possible when it comes to movies! As always, sound off in the comments and stay tuned for the latest on Jurassic World!
Irrfan Khan Confirmed and Omar Sy Joins Cast?

According to Backstage.com, Irrfan Khan and Omar Sy have been confirmed to join the cast of Jurassic World. Khan was in first talks to join the film back in November 2013, and its finally good to hear he is confirmed. In addition to Khan, the site reports that Omar Sy has also joined the cast. This is the first time we've heard any rumours of him for the film. He does look similar to David Oyelowo, who was being eyed for a role, so there is a chance that Sy could have taken that role. Omar Sy can be seen as Bishop in the upcoming Xmen: Days of Future Past.
Make sure you take all the rumours with a grain of salt.
Sy and Khan would join Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins to fight dinosaurs in Jurassic World.
