The director Anup Singh talking about how he painted the role of Irrfan Khan, said, “Yes, when I first started writing the male character, I even named him ‘Irrfan’! That’s how I saw the character. There’s the spirit of a musician in Irrfan. Though we don’t really say much to each other, we listen to each other’s timbre, modulation, tone of voice, and improvise dialogues like two musical instruments would! We have a deep understanding and respect for each other’s creative inspiration. Therefore, when we work together, it’s not just comfortably but also with the joy of opening to each other our creative best.” as quoted by Hindustan Times.

Release Date of The Song of Scorpions

According to reports in Hindustan Times, the release date is 28th April, just a day before Irrfan’s third death anniversary. The actor died in 2020 after battling a two-year-long battle with a neuroendocrine tumour.
