Satellite Shankar trailer out: Sooraj Pancholi is a soldier, on holiday

The November 15 release marks the Bollywood debut of Megha Akash

Published: 17th October 2019

“I’m not a hero,” avows Sooraj Pancholi in the trailer of Satellite Shankar, his long-awaited second feature after 2015’s Hero. “...ever seen a battlefield cross with a helmet on top? That’s my identity.”

In this Irfan Kamal-directed film, Sooraj plays an ardent Indian soldier posted in Kashmir. After an incident of some sort, he avails a few days’ leave to go see his family, swearing to report back on Monday. However, once back on civvy street, Sooraj – or Shankar – is beset with obstacles. He tows a marooned vehicle off a railway track, fights off goons at a market square, falls in love and sprints cross-country to catch a train. Eventually though, his story reaches far and wide, and the entire nation gets together to reunite him with his family. Akshay Kumar would be proud.

Satellite Shankar was shot across ten Indian states — the first Bollywood film to achieve the feat. The film marks the Bollywood debut of Megha Akash, who has appeared in the Telugu films Lie and Chal Mohan Ranga and was seen in the Tamil movies Petta, Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven, and Boomerang

Satellite Shankar is slated for release on November 15. Salman Khan has a cameo appearance in the film as ‘Bablu.’
