The film is based on the battle between the British Indian Army and Pashtun Orakzai tribesmen in then called NWFP.
It’s a clash of the titans as Akshay Kumar gears up for his latest project.
The Padman actor revealed the first look of Kesari, in which he’s seen looking fierce in a uniform and turban. And we also know that the actor opposite Akshay in the film is Parineeti Chopra!
Kesari is based on the Battle of Saragarhi (1897), which took place between the Sikh soldiers of the British Indian Army and Pashtun Orakzai tribesmen in the North-West Frontier Province (now Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan).
It was a battle in which 21 Sikh soldiers stood against 10,000 men.
Interestingly, Ajay Devgn is also making a film on the same battle called Sons of Sardar: Battle of Saragarhi. However, he postponed his project to avoid a clash with KJo’s film. Reportedly, due to the large scale of his film, it’ll take around three to four years to complete.
