The film is written and directed by Anup Singh, who also directed Irrfan in the post-Partition drama Qissa.

The film revolves around an independent young tribal woman (Iranian actor Golshifteh Farahani), who tries to overcome a brutal betrayal so as to find her voice.

Irrfan, who died in April at the age of 54, played the role of a camel trader in the movie.

Also starring veteran actor Waheeda Rehman, The Song of the Scorpians had its world premiere at the Locarno Film Festival in Locarno, Switzerland.

Irrfan's last big-screen release was Homi Adajania's Angrezi Medium in March.
