Irrfan Khan’s last film 'The Song of Scorpions' to release next year in theaters
Irrfan Khan was one of the finest actors of Indian Cinema of all times. As his fans and family are still coming to terms with his unfortunate death, the audience will get to see the legendary actor on the big screen one last time in 2021.
Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh, in his latest tweet, announced the news on social media 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 Taran Adarsh.
The Song Of Scorpions, which also stars Iranian actress and Golshifteh Farahani veteran Bollywood actor Waheeda Rehman, had its premiere at the 70th Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland in 2017. However, it has not had a theatrical release yet. Irrfan Khan played the role of a camel trader in the film.
Earlier this year, Irrfan Khan's son Babil shared a throwback picture of the late actor in a still from the film The Song Of Scorpions. In the picture, Irrfan could be seen sitting in front of a camel.
Irrfan Khan, star of international films such as Life Of Pi, The Amazing Spider-Man, returned to Mumbai some months ago after surgery and treatment in London.
Irrfan Khan is survived by his wife and two sons, Babil and Ayan. He died at the age of 53 in Mumbai's Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital on April 29. He had been battling cancer and his health worsened after a colon infection.
Over a span of 30 years, Irrfan Khan starred in several critically acclaimed as well as commercially successful films. Maqbool, Haasil, Paan Singh Tomar, Haider, Piku, The Lunchbox, Talvar and the Academy Award-nominated Salaam Bombay! are just a few of them.
The actor who acquired a star status over the years, also featured in international projects like The Namesake, Life Of Pi, Inferno, Slumdog Millionaire and The Warrior among others. His last project was Angrezi Medium, co-starring Kareena Kapoor, Radhika Madan and Dimple Kapadia.
