Akshay Kumar is on a dream run with back to back blockbusters last year. He’s starting off 2019 with a period war film based on the famous battle of Saragarhi in which 21 badass Sikh soldiers fought against 10,000 Afghans. In collaboration with actress Parineeti Chopra, he’s bringing one of the greatest “last stands” in military history to the big screens this Holi.
Here’s the official poster for the film.

Makers have also finally dropped two small teasers for the film which look absolutely stunning, especially with that battle background music. It’s giving out a bit of Hollywood’s 300 film. Watch it for yourself here.
Directed by Anurag Singh, Kesari is the story of Havildar Ishar Singh (played by Akshay Kumar) who lead those 21 Sikh Soldiers against all odds in the Battle of Saragarhi in 1897.
