Before releasing the trailer of his upcoming film Kesari, Akshay Kumar shared a glimpse of the movie in a 29-second clip, titled Glimpses of Kesari – Part 1, on Tuesday. Directed by Anurag Singh, Kesari is a war drama based on the Battle of Saragarhi in which an army of 21 Sikhs fought against the Afghans in 1897. The trailer of Kesari will release on February 21.
The short clip features snippets of the war scenario but Akshay doesn’t make an appearance in it as yet. “It’s an UNBELIEVABLE TRUE STORY,” Akshay captioned his post through which he shared the video.
On Lohri, Akshay had shared a picture from the sets of the film.
The first posters of Kesari were released on September 12, 2018, as the day is commemorated as Saragarhi Day.
In Kesari, Akshay sports a turban for his role of a Sikh warrior and while speaking of it at a press conference last year, he had said that wearing a turban filled him with pride.
Kesari casts Parineeti Chopra opposite Akshay and the actors completed filming in December. Backed by Cape of Good Hope Films and Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, Kesari is scheduled to release on March 21, 2019.
