Bollywood movie Kesari having actor Akshay Kumar in the lead role brought the story of the historic Battle of Saragarhi alive on the silver screen. The Anurag Singh directorial is all set to release in Japan in the month of August. The good news was shared by the actor himself on his social media account on Monday.

Akshay took to Twitter to share the update and wrote, “'Kesari', a film based on one of the bravest battles ever fought: 21 courageous soldiers against 10,000 invaders, is set to conquer Japan on August 16, 2019."

The movie, backed by Dharma Productions, depicts the bravery of 21 Sikhs of the 36th Sikh Regiment (now the 4th Battalion of Sikh Regiment) of British India defending an Army post against more than 10,000 Afghan and Orakzai tribesmen.

Zee Studios International took the film to 55 territories across the world and is now gearing up to showcase the film in Japan. This will be Akshay's second outing in the territory after "PadMan".

Vibha Chopra, Head-Global Syndication and International Film Distribution, ZEE Entertainment, said in a statement: "'Kesari' is a rare gem that transcends boundaries. It's a tale which will resonate with audiences across the globe and its successful run at the global box office proves that.
