Don't Worry Parineeti, Katrina Is Not Doing Akshay Kumar's Kesari

Yesterday when the reports broke out, they must have set Parineeti's heart aflutter. But Katrina Kaif has announced that she will not be romancing Akshay Kumar in Kesari

The industry has been buzzing with reports that Katrina Kaif has been signed for Kesari, opposite Akshay Kumar. The reports had claimed that Katrina has replaced Parineeti Chopra in the film.

Now, putting an end to the speculation, Katrina Kaif's spokesperson clarified: "The reports are completely untrue. Katrina Kaif has not been offered the film."

Kesari, which is a collaboration between Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar, is based on the famous battle of Saragarhi. Akshay had taken to social media to announce the name and date of release of the film earlier this month.

Akshay had captioned the picture as: "A film I'm extremely excited about personally and emotionally... #Kesari releasing Holi 2019! (sic)."

Even before this big announcement from Katrina, 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 was also in the process of making a film on the same subject, while Randeep too is busy shooting for a yet-untitled film based on the Battle Of Saragarhi.

Coming back to Kesari, the film directed by Anurag Singh will hit theatres on Holi 2019
