Directed by Anup Singh, The Song Of Scorpions premiered at the Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland in 2017, is slated to release in India next year. The Paan Singh Tomar actor Irrfan played the role of a camel trader in the film.

The film also starred Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani and veteran Bollywood actor Waheeda Rehman in vital roles. An excerpt from the SpotboyE.com review read, “Irrfan Khan’s final film is an exquisite piece of cinema. Enchanting to view, gorgeous in feel, The Song Of Scorpions is an enigmatic parable set to the tune of a cinematic rhythm by a master craftsman. This is not a love story. It is the story of a love that falls into an abyss.”

Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh announced the news of the film’s release on Twitter on Monday. “Irrfan’s last movie…The Song Of Scorpions – to release in 2021… Directed By Anup Singh… Presented By Panorama Spotlight and 70mm Talkies,” tweeted Adarsh.

Irrfan passed away at the age of 53 on April 29 this year. He was battling cancer for almost two years. He is survived by wife Sutapa, Babil and his younger son, Ayaan. His last theatrical release was Angrezi Medium.
