Breaking! Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar announce their next film - Kesari
Abhishree Kulkarni  [ Tue, Oct 10, 2017 ]
For the longest time there had been news about Karan Johar and Akshay Kumar collaborating for a film based on the story of Battle of Saragarhi. But no official announcement was made until now.

On Tuesday evening, the actor and filmmaker finally confirmed that they are indeed teaming up for the project. The 'Toilet Ek Prem Katha' actor confirmed that he will be starring in a Dharma Productions' film titled 'Kesari'. Akshay took to Twitter to make the big announcement, he wrote, "A film I'm extremely excited about personally and emotionally... #Kesari releasing Holi 2019."

A post was also shared by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions' official Twitter handle that read, "Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar proudly present 'Kesari' based on one of the bravest battles fought in India 'The Battle of Saragarhi' Directed by Anurag Singh and starring Akshay Kumar Releasing Holi 2019."

An ecstatic Karan Johar wrote, "Extremely excited to see this exceptional and brave story unfold!!! @akshaykumar #KESARI #holi2019."

The Battle of Saragarhi was fought before the Tirah Campaign on 12 September 1897 between Sikh soldiers of the British Indian Army and Pashtun Orakzai tribesmen. The British Indian contingent comprised 21 Sikhs, who were stationed at an army post attacked by around 10,000 Afghans. The Sikhs, led by Havildar Ishar Singh, chose to fight to the death, in what is considered by some military historians as one of history's greatest last-stands. The post was recaptured two days later by another British Indian contingent. Sikh military personnel commemorate the battle every year on 12 September, as Saragarhi Day.

'Kesari' will be directed by Anurag Sinha and will hit the screens on Holi 2019.
