The late actors Irrfan Khan, Rishi Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput will be honoured by the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne. This year, the festival will screen Irrfan's 'Song of Scorpion', Rishi Kapoor's '102 Not Out' and Sushant's 'Kedarnath' as part of IFFM's tribute segment.
Mitu Bhowmick Lange said in a statement "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 little bit 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." Besides Sushant, Sara Ali Khan, who made her debut with this Abhishek Kapoor directorial, also starred in the movie. While Rishi Kapoor's film saw Amitabh Bachchan playing the role of his father. 'Song of Scorpio' saw Irrfan reunite with Anup Singh, the director of 'Qissa.' Golshifteh Farahani also starred in the movie.
After fighting with a neuroendocrine tumour, Irrfan Khan died on April 29. The next day, on April 30th, Rishi Ji passed away after fighting cancer. Sushant was found dead at his residence on June 14th. The CBI is currently investigating the case involving his death.
