The movie is based on the Battle Of Saragarhi and it will also mark Akshay Kumar and Parineeti Chopra’s first film together.
Kesari is being backed by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and will be distributed by Reliance Entertainment. Earlier, the actor shared a pic from the sets in which he was clicked with kids.
