Starring Akshay Kumar in the lead role, Kesari is easily one of the most awaited Bollywood movies of the year. The period war drama is directed by Anurag Singh and based on the real-life story of the 1897 Battle of Saragarhi. What makes this battle truly iconic is that it was fought between an army of 21 brave Sikhs against 10,000 Afghans. Akshay Kumar will be playing the role of Havildar Ishar Singh who led the Sikhs into battle.
After Akshay dropped three back-to-back teasers of Kesari, fans were impatient and hungry for more. While the teasers gave us exciting glimpses of Akshay and his men in a war field, the freshly released trailer of the film really took it up a notch. The trailer kicks off in high gear with Akshay Kumar delivering a heartfelt voice-over with weapons in hand and a kesari pagdi draped on his head. What follows is a power-packed look at the incredible true story of valor. Akshay Kumar is fearless and thunderous as Havildar Ishar Singh. We also get our first glimpse of Parineeti Chopra as Ishar Singh’s wife. Backed by the beating background music, the trailer takes us into the warzone with the 21 brave men ready to take on an impossible feat. You’ll definitely get the goosebumps when Akshay delivers the powerful dialogue – “Aaj meri pagdi bhi kesari. Jo bahega mera woh lahoo bhi kesari, aur mera jawaab bhi kesari.”
