Before releasing the trailer of his upcoming film Kesari, Akshay Kumar shared a glimpse of the movie in a 26-second clip, titled Glimpses of Kesari – Part 2, 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. "This is the bravest battle ever fought! Presenting the second one from the
#GlimpsesOfKesari. #KesariTrailer21Feb," Akshay captioned his post through which he shared the video.
The video features a Sikh warrior walking out of the battleground, burning in fire from head to toe but soon after raising his hand up in the sky, celebrating his victory.
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.
