He had always wanted to be a part of a music-based film that would help him further his fondness. In 2013, he declared his urge to do a film that would cater to his love for music, perhaps even give him an opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument. Reportedly, Song of the Scorpion has seven songs which have been composed along and will be released with the film.
Now the latest news is that two of the songs from the film were recorded by live local musicians in the deserts of Jaisalmer. The song was shot in freezing temperatures.
Waheeda Rahman and Shashank Arora will also be playing crucial roles in the film. Since Irrfan belongs to Rajasthan, shooting in his native place was special for him.
