Akshay Kumar-starrer Kesari is all geared up for its upcoming release. The Airlift actor has been delivering some of his best work in recent times be it, PadMan or 2.0. The makers of Kesari, on Monday, shared the first look of Akshay and the leading lady Parineeti Chopra. Akshay stands tall with his chest swelled like a proud soldier, as he adorns a heavy turban in one photo. In another picture, the actor can be seen sharing the frame with Parineeti in a more homely surrounding. The movie is slated for a March 21 release next year.
The much-awaited film from the stable of Dharma Productions has been making waves ever since the first look was shared on social media. The flick which is based on the battle of Saragarhi will reportedly see the ‘Rustom’ actor in the role of Havildar Ishar Singh.

Interestingly, the Khiladi actor usually opts for Republic Day or Independence Day for the film release, but Kesari will be released in March.
Earlier in September, Akshay took to his social media accounts to share the first look of Kesari on Saragarhi Day. “On #SaragarhiDay, here’s the first look of #KESARI - our humble tribute to the martyrs of Saragarhi! “Aaj meri pagdi bhi Kesari...Jo bahega mera woh lahu bhi Kesari... Aur mera jawaab bhi Kesari,” wrote the Hera Pheri actor.

Akshay’s last venture with 2.0, co-starring Rajinikanth, was one of the biggest movies ever made in Indian cinema because of its massive budget which was around Rs 550 crore. As per some reports, the science fiction film has already crossed Rs 700 crore mark in just two weeks beating Baahubali and Aamir Khan’s Dangal. The movie became the first ever Kollywood flick to achieve such box office collection worldwide. Even the Hindi version of the film has garnered Rs 177.75 crore in India, which is quite impressive.
