The Anup Singh directorial is set in Jaislalmer and will see Khan play the role of a local camel trader.

Khan had earlier shared a photo of himself on the sets of the film on Twitter. He looks straight out of a village in Rajasthan in the photo.

The poster of The Song Of Scorpions was tweeted by trade analyst Taran Adarsh.

Here's his tweet:

 

The poster features the two actors facing each other and a silouhette of a woman, probably Farahani, against the desert sky.

The story of film is based around a transgressive relationship between Khan and Farahani, who plays a local woman. Since the film is set in a provincial town in Rajasthan, the story will explore their bond and its repercussions in the social milieu. The peculiarity of the film is what drew Khan to take up the role, in the first place.

The film is all set to premiere at Locarno International Film Festival. Singh had earlier directed Khan in the 2013 Indian-German drama Qissa, as well.
