Irrfan Khan’s last movie on the big screens is his fine work in The Song of Scorpions. It also features Iranian actor Golshifteh Farahani. The film is all set to release in theatres sometime in early 2021. The film premiered at Locarno Film Festival (2017) and has also been screened at film festivals. Directed by Anup Singh, the shift to the big screens is but a tribute to the star that Irrfan Khan is.
Producer Abhishek Pathak went on to say, “We will be offering the film to the audience as a tribute to the beloved star of Indian cinema. It is truly an honour to present his final performance.” Khan plays the role of a camel trade in the movie. Meanwhile, The Song of Scorpions also features Waheeda Rehman.
Son Babil Khan took to social media to inform everyone about what we think can be Irrfan Khan’s last movie on the big screens. However, Khan mentioned that he hopes it does not be the last one. In fact, we too, hope that other films from the actor make a comeback to the screens!
