Kesari is an action-war film, starring Akshay Kumar and Parineeti Chopra in the lead roles. It is based on the true story of the Battle of Saragarhi, in which 21 Sikhs fought fearlessly against 10,000 Afghans in 1897.
Parineeti plays the wife of Akshay in the film. Earlier, talking about her character in the film, she had said, "Everybody knows 'Kesari' is about the Battle of Saragarhi. It's a boys film, but at very crucial and emotional moments of the film, character of Akshay Kumar thinks about his dead wife (played by me). It's very cool love story that is woven into the story of battle. I have a very small role in the film, but it is one of those films that I wanted to be a part of."
Directed by Anurag Singh and produced by Dharma Productions, it is scheduled for release on March 21.
