Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar have announced that the film based on the battle of Saragarhi, will be called Kesari and will release on Holi 2019
A little while ago Karan Johar took to Twitter to say that a big film announcement was all set to happen. Karan's tweet read, "Mega film announcement coming up....watch this space!!! (sic)."
Now the wait is finally over. The film KJo was talking about was none other than his collaboration with Akshay Kumar, Kesari. The film is based on the famous battle of Saragarhi. Akshay took to social media to share the news.
Akshay captioned the pic as: "A film I'm extremely excited about personally and emotionally... #Kesari releasing Holi 2019! (sic)."
Even before this big announcement, the film has had its fair share of controversies. The film was said to be a joint venture between Salman Khan Films and Dharma Productions. However, Salman backed out, and that's when Akshay came onboard as the co-producer.
Interestingly, the battle of Saragarhi has been a bone of contention between Akshay, Ajay Devgn and Randeep Hooda. Ajay's Sons Of Sardaar will also be based on the same battle, while Randeep too is busy shooting for a yet-untitled film based on the same battle.
Coming back to Kesari, the film directed by Anurag Singh will hit theatres on Holi 2019.
