“Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar proudly present Kesari based on one of the bravest battles fought in India ‘The Battle of Saragarhi.’ Directed by Anurag Singh and starring Akshay Kumar.
Earlier this year, Akshay, KJo and Salman Khan together announced this film. However, it was reported that since Ajay Devgn is already making a film on the same subject, he asked Salman not to make another film.
Meanwhile, Randeep Hooda is also doing a film based on The Battle of Saragarhi, in which 21 Sikh soldiers fought 10,000 Afghans. Kesari is the third film on the same subject.
The movie is all set to hit the theatres in Holi 2019.
