There has been quite some hype around the upcoming film Kesari, which stars Akshay Kumar in the lead role. Looks like we already have some leads on it, as the first poster of Kesari got released recently. The poster has definitely increased the already high excitement around the film, and we are not complaining!
The film Kesari is a tribute to the martyrs of Saragriha. In the Battle of Saragriha, 21 Sikhs fought against 10,000 Afghans in the year 1897. The film chronicles their story, and, Akshay Kumar plays the role of Havildar Ishar Singh.

The film also stars Parineeti Chopra as Havildar Ishar Singh’s wife. Parineeti shared, “It has been a dream to work with Akshay for a long time. He is a Punjabi and so am I and we are doing a Punjabi film together. I am very excited to start the shoot”.
Akshay Kumar tweeted about the poster release and very well conveyed his enthusiasm. Even Dharma Productions tweeted about the poster release, which has numerous Sikhs in their uniforms with kesari turbans. The film is directed by famous Punjabi director Anurag Singh, who has also co-written the film alongside Girish Kohli. The film is expected to release next year on 21st March.
Akshay Kumar had a very good 2018, with his films Padman and Gold becoming major hits. With the advent of Kesari, looks like the Khiladi will have a wonderful 2019 too!
