Late actor Irrfan Khan's last film "The Song of Scorpions" is set to be released in 2021, the makers announced on Monday.

Panorama And 70mm will be presenting the film, a Feather Light and KNM production, in cinemas across India in early 2021.

Bollywood trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh took to Twitter on Monday to announce the news. "Irrfan's last movie...The Song Of Scorpions - to release in 2021... Directed By Anup Singh... Presented By Panorama Spotlight and 70mm Talkies."

On a quest to overcome a brutal betrayal so as to find her voice, The Song Of Scorpions, shares the story of an independent young tribal woman starring Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani and veteran Bollywood actor Waheeda Rehman. Irrfan played the role of a camel trader in the movie.

The movie had its premiere at the 70th Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland in 2017. However, it has not had a theatrical release yet.

Irrfan's last big screen release was Homi Adajania's "Angrezi Medium" in March. The internationally renowned actor Irrfan Khan passed away in April this year at Mumbai's Kokilaben Hospital while battling a rare kind of cancer.
