Patriotism is surely a subject filmmakers love to explore. While we just saw the release of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, a biopic on Rani Lakshmibai, in the coming months too we will get to see many movies with patriotism as its theme and one of them will be Akshay Kumar starrer Kesari. The movie is based on the Battle of Saragarhi that took place in 1897 and on our 70th Republic Day, Akshay took to Twitter to share a still of the film.
Akshay is known for his penchant for patriotic films from the past few years and with Kesari releasing this year, 2019 won’t be an exception. Along with the still, he has given us a brief of what the Battle of Saragarhi was about. In his tweet, he has written that 122 years ago, 21 Sikhs fought 10000 invaders and we will get to see their story on the big screen in Kesari on March 21, 2019. While most of the Akshay starrers release during Republic Day or Independence Day, Kesari will hit the screens during Holi holiday.
Directed by Anurag Singh, Kesari also stars Parineeti Chopra in a pivotal role. Well, fans of Akshay and Parineeti are excited to see them on the big screen together for the first time.
