“Ek gore ne mujhse kahaa thaa ki tum gulaam ho. Hindustan ki mitti se darpok paida hote hain. Aaj jawaab dene ka waqt ho gaya hai,” Akshay Kumar exclaims in the trailer of Kesari as he prepares himself for war. 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.
In the trailer of Kesari which released today, Akshay, cast as a Sikh warrior, fights a valiant battle with the Afghans while declaring the message of Kesari to his fellow battlers. “Kesari rang ka matlab samajhte ho. Bahaduri ka rang hai. Shaheedi ka,” Akshay’s character proclaims in the trailer. The last scene of the clip will cause goosebumps as Akshay shrieks a cry of victory while slashing an enemy with his sword.
