After making his Bollywood debut with the 2015 film Hero, actor Sooraj Pancholi is all set to appear on-screen for the second time with the upcoming film Satellite Shankar. Helmed by Irfan Kamal, the film is based on the life of Indian soldiers.

On Thursday, the makers of the film have released the much-anticipated trailer. In the trailer, Sooraj can be seen playing an offbeat soldier who keeps the mood at his border camp cheerful with his lively spirit. However, the film doesn’t deal with wars or any tense situation as one would expect. Instead, the movie takes the audience on a journey of self-discovery as the soldier unites the nation on his vacation while exploring the beauty of the country.

Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his official Twitter handle to share the trailer of the film. Alongside the trailer, he wrote, “Sooraj Pancholi… Trailer of #SatelliteShankar… Directed by Irfan Kamal… 15 Nov 2019 release (sic).”

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, the makers of the film also unveiled a new poster of the film. Actor Sooraj Pancholi took to his official Instagram handle to share the new poster of the film.

Alongside the poster, he wrote, “To everyone out there wearing their heart on their sleeves, here’s my salute to you! #SatelliteShankar trailer out TOMORROW! In cinemas from 15th November (sic).”


Satellite Shankar will also mark the Bollywood debut of South actress Megha Akash, who is a popular face in Tamil and Telugu industry. Megha will play the female lead alongside Sooraj.

The film was earlier scheduled to release on July 5 but now will hit the screens on November 15.
