Kesari is an upcoming action-war based on a story of Havildar Ishar Singh who participates in the Battle of Saragarhi in which an army of 21 Sikhs fought against 10,000 Afghans in 1897.
The lead actor, Akshay Kumar told about his preparations and role in the movie, “I didn’t have to do many preparations for the movie as our director, Anurag was very supportive throughout the journey. But when I carried the Pag (turban) that I am wearing in the movie brought a sense of responsibilty and an emotional aspect for me. Kesari is based on the Saragarhi battle, which is nowhere in our syllabus but it is one of the bravest battles ever fought in Indian history and it must be told worldwide. This movie will definitely tell its story and reach out to the hearts of the people.”
Parineeti spoke about the fun she had working with Akshay while shooting for Kesari, “Akshay Sir is an amazing person and he is full of energy. He always used to do pranks on me on the sets. I had fun shooting all the songs in the movie. I am playing his wife’s role in the movie which is a very light role. I didn’t have to do many preparations for this role as our director Anurag was very supportive and helpful each day on the sets, so I just had to approach him every day and he made me understood all the work.”
Director Anurag Singh told about his directorial passion, “For me, story is the most important part of the movie. It should touch the heart of the director only then you will be able to invest one or two years of your life to the script.”
Kesari is going to be in theatres on March 21 and we hope audience will really love the historical aspect of the film and the hardwork of the makers of the makers.
