Kesari is an upcoming period film based on the Battle of Saragarhi where 21 Sikhs fought against 10,000 Afghans in 1897. Akshay plays the role of Havildar Ishar Singh in the film. The film also stars Parineeti Chopra.

Akshay Kumar tweeted, “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.'”

Dharma Productions also tweeted, “On the occasion of #SaragarhiDay this year, याद रखो #Kesari का रंग और उसकी शान!”

Kesari is helmed by Anurag Singh who is a popular Punjabi director. Anurag has previously directed films like Jatt & Juliet, Punjab 1984 among others. This is his first Hindi film. He has also co-written the film with Girish Kohli.

Kesari is scheduled to release on March 21, 2019.
