Irrfan, who is currently shooting for Geneva-based director Anup Singh's film in Jaisalmer, is looking forward to working with her. The actress will be playing the role of the mother-in-law of Irrfan's character in the film.
"It's like flash back merging into present. Waheeda ji was not a heroine but a symbol of a perfect woman for me. It's a privilege to work with the celluloid poetry. She is playing my mother-in-law in the film," Irrfan said in a statement.
'The Song Of Scorpions' also stars Iranian beauty Golshifteh Farahani and Tillotama Shome in key roles.
