Following the compelling teaser of Sherdil last week, the makers released a slightly extended version of the teaser recently where Mikaal Zulfikar shoots down an enemy plane in a plane chase sequence.
The new teaser was dropped in midst of the ongoing tensions between India and Pakistan. The timing of the teaser’s release was nearly perfect as Pakistanis have been rooting for Pakistani Air force for their commendable defense against India’s recent violation.
While Pakistan acted only to defend, the way our Air force shot down two Indian jets made Pakistanis emotional. Given how the Air force risks their lives for their country is truly touching. In the teaser, we see our very own Mikaal Zulfikar play the fighter pilot who shoots down an enemy plane.
The teaser appeared to be a tribute to our Pakistani Airforce and it certainly evoked our sentiments. The teaser seems to be paying respects to our Air force.
The teaser was very likely a deliberate move, both to satiate the appetite of those high on emotions during aggravated tensions and also to capture audience at such a time.
Nevertheless, the teaser came across as a fitting move. It is impressive and captivating. It also came with the message of peace! Mikaal Zulfikaar released the teaser with the tagline, “Baishak hum apne aap ko defend karne ka haq bhe rakhte hein aur kar bhe sakte hein.. Laiken, Jangon ke baaten filmon aur khabron tak he rahe to acha he! Sab ke liay”

Baishak hum apne aap ko defend karne ka haq bhe rakhte hein aur kar bhe sakte hein.. Laiken, Jangon ke baaten filmon aur khabron tak he rahe to acha he! Sab ke liay #Sherdil #Releasing 22nd #March #WeAreReadySir but we wish #Peace
The actor preached peace and wrote that war should only be limited to films! A very important message indeed and we couldn’t agree more.
We also got to see a little more in respect to Mikaal and Hassan’s characters straining relation, given that Hassan is playing an Indian fighter pilot. The film is based on the event of 1965 war between the nations. The film will take us throughout the journey of a young pilot who wants to become the top fighter pilot out there!
