The much-awaited trailer of Akshay Kumar starrer Kesari is out, and we must say, it has surely left us intrigued. Kesari is based on the battle of Saragarhi fought between the British Indian army’s Sikh Regiment and Afghan tribesmen in September 1897.
A total of 21 Sikh soldiers, who were part of the British Indian Army, were attacked by 10,000 Afghan tribal warriors. These 21 soldiers fought like lions to protect their country from enemy. Akshay is inspiring as the fearless Havildar Ishar Singh. We can also see a glimpse of the female lead Parineeti Chopra, who is filled with pride as Akshay heads into battle. Check out the trailer below:
Talking about his experience of working on the film, Akshay had earlier said, ''I’ve started shooting for my film Kesari, where I’m in the heaviest turban and beard I’ve ever had to wear. So I shaved my head to make my life a little easier. I’m known for hating wigs, prosthetics and so on, and Kesari is quite demanding. It’s probably my favourite look, though it’s taxing to fight and sweat in this avatar. But I wouldn’t change it for the world.”
Directed by Anurag Singh, Kesari also stars Siddhant Sharma, Ashwath Bhatt, Pawan Malhotra and Rana Ranbir. The film is slated to release on Holi on March 21, 2019.
