Kesari New Posters:
Everyone is aware of the immense acting talent that Akshay Kumar possesses and he has proven it time and again. Give him Raju of Hera Pheri or Ranjit Katyal of Airlift, he would pull all of it off with utmost perfection. Though he does not have the title of being the perfectionist of the industry, he sure knows discipline, time management and hence, perfection. Akshay Kumar will be coming very soon with his upcoming movie Kesari. He and Karan Johar have recently revealed two new posters of the film and they are just setting the tone for what amazing stuff is to come our way.
Akshay Kumar, in the recent past, had done a couple of movies bringing chapters of history to the fore and is yet again all set to bring one of the bravest tales of valour and sacrifice with his movie, Kesari. Battle of Saragarhi is popular for it glorifies the valour of 21 Sikhs who fearlessly fought 10,000 Afghans in the year 1897. Based on this battle, Kesari will be an Indian period war drama movie telling a story of a man, Havildar Ishar Singh who was among those 21 Sikhs and participated in the battle with all his might. Not many know that it was Ishar Singh’s yearn for respect in the eyes of his estranged daughter that led him to lead this battle.
Akshay Kumar will be playing the primary character of Havildar Ishar Singh in the movie and Parineeti Chopra has been cast opposite him. The team wrapped up the shooting in mid-December. Karan Johar, the producer of the film revealed a poster, revealing the trailer release date as well. Here’s what he posted:
“Glimpses of the film will be out tomorrow!!! Trailer will release on the 21st of February!!!! The BRAVEST BATTLE EVER FOUGHT!! #KESARI releases 21st March!!! @akshaykumar @parineetichopra directed by ANURAG SINGH”
Akshay Kumar shared another poster of the film a couple of hours ago where he can be seen wielding a sword and carrying a fierce look of a warrior. Here’s the poster:

“Aaj meri pagdi bhi Kesari, jo bahega mera woh lahoo bhi Kesari, aur mera jawaab bhi Kesari.”
The posters look extremely enticing and we wish the movie was releasing sooner than that but the good thing is that we will get to have a look at the trailer on 21st February which was earlier reportedly supposed to release on 11th February. This will be the third movie where Akshay Kumar will be taking on the turban. He has played a Sikh before on screen in movies like Singh is Kinng and its sequel Singh is Bliing and both of the movies were great earners at the box office. And this time too, though the tone of the movie is completely different, he will nail as Sardar Havildar Ishar Singh.
About the same, Akshay Kumar earlier while talking about the movie had iterated that it gives him immense honour to be wearing the Sikh turban. He was quoted as saying,
“I have been shooting for ‘Kesari’ since the last one and a half months, and every time that I wear the taaj (turban) on my head, I am filled with pride.”
Parineeti Chopra will be playing Akshay Kumar’s love interest in the film and when she was asked about her role, she said,
“It is about the Battle of Saragarhi and it’s all about the boys in the film. I have a much smaller role to play, but I enjoyed it thoroughly and I hope that I have done justice to it. I play Akshay sir’s love interest and when I heard the story, I just wanted to do it.”
Nothing much is known of her role yet but Parineeti had tweeted earlier and had written:
“Anytime I watched a war movie, it was the love story of those brave men that kept me going..so proud to be a part of this epic experience!!! Thank you Akshay sir, Kjo & Anurag sir for allowing me to be a part of your vision. “You all have made one of the most beautiful movies people will ever see!! People – Don’t miss it on 21 Mar 2019!”
Akshay Kumar enjoys huge stardom in the country, for the kind of roles he does, for the amount of effort he puts in his characters and also, for his candidness. This movie has been awaited by many and this would be the first time that this tale would be told to the countrymen on such a wide scale. The movie is meant to leave an impact and by the looks of the couple of posters that the team has shared, it wouldn’t be much a difficult task.
Directed by Anurag Singh and jointly produced by Dharma Productions, Cape of Good Films and Azure Entertainment, Kesari is slated to release on March 21, 2019. This will be Karan Johar and Akshay Kumar’s first collaboration ever and Akshay is extremely excited for the same.
Later, after this movie, Akshay has a couple of more in his store. He will be seen in his loyal franchise, Housefull 4 along with Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol, Rana Daggubati, Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbanda and others. Then he has a movie with Kareena Kapoor Khan after a really long time titled Good News and post that, he will share the screen space with Vidya Balan in Mission Mangal.
This is going to be a great year for Akshay and it will all begin with Kesari next month. How did you find the posters? Tell us in the comments.
