Akshay Kumar and Parineeti Chopra starrer war drama Kesari, based on the 1897 Battle of Saragarhi, where an army of 21 Sikhs fought against 10,000 Afghans, is currently in its fourth week but has joined the Rs 150 crore club by the end of its third week. The film has earned a total of Rs. 150.91 crore at the domestic box-office and guess what? Parineeti, who plays Akshay's deceased wife in the film, celebrated the film's success in a unique way.
The actress lent her voice for the female version of the period drama's hit song Teri Mitti and Karan Johar, who bankrolled Kesari under his banner, shared the song recently on his Twitter handle. Watch it here:
Couldn't have been a better way to bring out every note of this beautiful song, #TeriMitti than @ParineetiChopra! https://t.co/huLyj9s9Zk@akshaykumar @SinghAnurag79 @apoorvamehta18 @SunirKheterpal @DharmaMovies #CapeOfGoodFilms @iAmAzure @ZeeStudios_ @ZeeMusicCompany #Kesari

The original song was sung by B Praak and talking about the latest version, composer Arko Pravo Mukherjee told a leading daily, "Teri Mitti is a martyr’s tribute to his motherland and it brought in emotional mails from people all over the world. Parineeti’s version has different lyrics because she was keen to do a female take on the song. Manoj (Muntashir, lyricist), Parineeti and I had a few meetings before Anurag (Singh, who directed the film) came on board. Karan (producer, Karan Johar) approved the idea.”
The latest version has come out after three week of the film's release as an 'added attraction'.
