Introducing to you the first look of Akshay Kumar from his upcoming movie Kesari. 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. Akshay will portray the role of Commander Havildar Ishar Singh and is directed by Anurag Singh. Must say he looks really charming and totally in character. Dorning a turban and with a long beard and intense look in his eyes, he seems to be doing real justice to the character of Commander Singh.
Nothing is official yet, but Parineeti Chopra might star opposite Akshay in the film. Earlier producer-director Karan Johar took to Twitter to announce the movie and its release date i.e. Holi 2019.
