Irfan Kamal is the director of the movie Satellite Shankar while it has been produced by Ashwin Varde, SCIPL and Murad Khetani. Regarding the movie, Sooraj has said “I have always wanted to play a soldier in a classic war or an action film. But this is not a war film, it’s not an action film, it’s a drama. The movie is about the life of every soldier – of what they see and feel in personal life.”
Later on, Sooraj has added “It’s not about a soldier’s life at the base camp. It is about a soldier, who is on leave and is going to meet his mother. It’s what he faces through the journey while travelling through India. So, it is looking at India from a soldier’s point of view.”
Release of the movie is scheduled on 15th November, 2018.
