Irrfan Khan on the big screen one last time with The Song of Scorpions. Written and directed by Anup Singh, the film, which is a “story of twisted love, revenge and the redemptive power of a song”, also stars Golshifteh Farahani, Waheeda Rehman and Shashank Arora.
The Song of Scorpions will be released in early 2021 by Panorama Spotlight along with 70 MM Talkies.
Though The Song of Scorpions is not the final project Irrfan shot for, it will indeed be the last film of his career to see the light of day. The Song of Scorpions premiered at Switzerland’s 70th Locarno Film Festival in August 2017.
The film follows Nooran (Farahani), a fiercely independent tribal woman who is learning the ancient healing art of scorpion-singing from her grandmother Zubeidaa (Rehman).
