Karan Johar & Akshay Kumar to work together on film ‘Kesari’
Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar and filmmaker Karan Johar have officially announced their upcoming Hindi film titled ‘Kesari’.
Akshay took to social media and informed his fans that the film is based on ‘one of the bravest battles found in India, The battle of Saragarhi.’
The film will be directed by Anurag Singh and is set to release in theatres during Holi 2019.
The Battle of Saragarhi was fought between Sikh soldiers of the British Indian Army and Pashtun Orakzai tribesmen, before the Tirah Campaign on 12 September 1897.
The battle happened in the North-West Frontier Province, which is now Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in Pakistan.
