Catch Irrfan Khan one last time on big screens in his last film ‘The Song of Scorpions’

Honoured with Padma Shri in 2011, Irrfan Khan was regarded as one of the finest actors not only in Indian cinema but also across the world of contemporary cinema.

Fans of the late actor are therefore thrilled to hear of the release on the big screen of the late actor's last film The Song Of Scorpions, in early 2021.

The Song of Scorpions had its world premiere at the 70th Locarno Film Festival in 2017 but has not been presented to the audience in India or worldwide. 

This will therefore be the first time that this Feather Light and KNM production will be shown in cinemas across India early next year by Panorama Spotlight and 70 MM Talkies. 

Irrfan Khan, the actor who made his mark in the acting world left it too early at the age of 54  when he succumbed to medical ailments in April 2019. 

After releasing Karwaan in 2018, the actor was diagnosed with neurological ailments and went abroad for treatment. 

While still under treatment the actor returned to Bollywood after a break with  Homi Adajania's "Angrezi Medium" in March 2019, a kind of sequel to his 2017 hit movie Hindi Medium.

Directed by Anup Singh, the drama in The Song of Scorpions revolves around an independent young tribal woman, who tries to overcome a brutal betrayal so as to find her voice. 

Irrfan Khan will be seen in the role of a camel trader in the film that also features Bollywood veteran Waheeda Rehman and Iranian star Golshifteh Farahani.

The movie was screened in Singapore as an official selection at the island nation's 28th Singapore International Film Festival in Nov-Dec 2017.
