Bollywood star Akshay Kumar, who featured as Havildar Ishar Singh in Kesari — a film on the historical Battle of Saragarhi — has urged the youth to watch the film as he feels the heroic tale has got lost in the pages of history books.

At an event here on Friday, Akshay said: “It is sad that though the British celebrate Saragarhi Day, remembering the martyrs of the war, but we Indians do not know much about it. It is sad how an incident like this has got lost in the pages of history.

  1. Will hardly touch 100 Cr because of the subject. Parents won’t take growing kids to the movie, as it would invite many curious questions from them :)

  2. If Akshay would release movies without clash, and get 6000+ screens like Khans do, and raise the price of the tickets, and release in extended holidays like EID, DIWALI or CHRISTMAN, Akshay would have most of his movies with 150+ cr and even on 200cr. He has many films in the high 80s and 90 crores, those movies would have crossed 100 cr as well.

    We can see how SRK’s movies are doing these days when clashing with other movies. The same thing has been happening to Akshay for a long time. He never gets good screens. By the time his movies get through 1 week, most theatres pull down his movies and release new movies.

    Padman (very limited audience)
    Gold (clashed with Satyameva Jayate)
    TEPK (almost clashed with SRK’s JHMS – just one week diff)
    Jolly LLB 2 (non-holiday; just had 2 big movies released about 2 weeks before and got very limited screens)
    Rustom (clashed with Hrithik’s Mahenjo Daro)
    AIrlift (clashed with Kya Cool Hai Hum 3)
