Earlier, Akshay Kumar shared a pic from the sets in which he was clicked with kids. He captioned the image as, “Innocent smiles galore on set today! Shooting with these lovely children playing Afghani kids in #Kesari based on the Battle Of Saragarhi, one of the bravest battles fought in India.
Kesari, which is based on the Battle of Saragarhi, also features Parineeti Chopra in a pivotal role. The battle was fought between the British Indian Army that consisted of 21 Sikh Soldiers and Afghan Orakzai Tribesmen in North-West Frontier Province.
Akshay Kumar is playing the role of Havildar Ishwar Singh in the film, who led the Sikhs in the fight. The films required Kumar to do a number of action scenes which are being coordinated by stunt coordinator Lawrence Woodward of the Oscar-winning Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) fame.
“I have been shooting for ‘Kesari’ since the last one and a half months, and every time that I wear the taaj (turban) on my head, I am filled with pride,” Akshay Kumar talked about his role in Kesari in an eariler interview.
