Akshay shares in the video, “I had the best time doing action for Kesari because they were raw. The very premise of the film is something that swells my chest with pride. There are two major action sequences the film has. Spiti was a beautiful place but it had it own challenges – high altitude and low oxygen. The action choreography was quite difficult. Also, to recreate a battle that took place in 1897, we had to learn the traditional battle style then.”
“Kesari is based one epic battle of Sargarhi which was one of the most heroic battles seen in the history. It is a story about the courage of 21 Sikh soldiers who fought against 10000 invaders to defend their honour.The film also salutes the never-give-up attitude the Sikhs have,” the actor added.
Director Anurag Singh also said, “The most interesting scene to choreograph was the climax when Akshay sir takes the sword and fights. The guys are storming into the fort and he is standing there alone… that was something.”
Kesari is a joint venture of Karan Johar and Akshay together, the movie speaks about the 1897 Battle of Saragarhi fought between the Sikh soldiers and Pashtun Orakzai.
The film will star Parineeti Chopra as the female lead, playing Akshay’s wife.
Directed by Anurag Singh, the film will release on 21 March, 2019.
