The Hindi film industry has seen some deeply personal losses this year. Tragic deaths of Irrfan Khan, Rishi Kapoor and then Sushant Singh Rajput, the sense of a loss has been felt. It was, thus, required for the year’s first Indian film festival – Indian Film Festival of Melbourne to commemorate their legacy. As a part of IFFM’s tribute section, the festival will be screening Irrfan Khan’s Song of Scorpion, Rishi Kapoor’s 102 Not Out and Sushant Singh Rajput starrer Kedarnath this year.

In a statement, film festival Mitu Bhowmick Lange, said, “Artistes live on through their legacy. These were some fine men who did some incredible movies that resonated with everyone. It was important for us to celebrate their memory. We handpicked some great films for our audience so that we relive a few of their lives with them. Their loss to the film industry is irrevocable but the magic of their movies will continue to entertain generations hereafter.” Bollywood surely misses Rishi Ji, Irrfan & SSR.

It also may be marked that while Rishi Kapoor’s 102 Not Out (that also starred Amitabh Bachchan) and Sushant Singh Rajput’s Kedarnath (which was the debut of Sara Ali Khan were commercial successes in domestic and worldwide markets; it’s the first time that the Indian diaspora world over will get access to Song of Scorpion. The 2017 film saw Khan reunite with his Qissa director Anup Singh and the movie starred Golshifteh Farahani. The film was reviewed after its premiere at the Locarno Film Festival in 2017.
