Ahead of the release of his film Kesari, actor Akshay Kumar visited a BSF camp and performed a mock fight with a woman officer in Delhi. Apart from talking about the film, Akshay Kumar danced and tested his strength by getting involved in a mock fight with BSF jawans.
Akshay on Tuesday took to Instagram and shared a video in which he can be seen engaged in a mock fight with a woman officer.
The actor started the fight with some clever tricks but was quickly pinned to the ground by the officer.
Appreciating the officer's stint, Akshay wrote: "Woman strong, mother strong, sister strong, then country strong."
Akshay also posted a video in which he can be seen performing fake kickboxing with another woman officer.
"Always treat to meet the jawans from BSF India. Their training, passion and enthusiasm is top-notch, always a learning experience," Akshay captioned the video.
Akshay Kumar is happiest when he is doing stunts, and with Kesari, where he plays a brave-heart soldier, he is returning to action after a long interval.
“I have had one of the best times doing the action sequences for Kesari because they were so raw. It was completely out of the world. The very premise of the film is something which swells my chest with pride and the climax where I had to fight hordes of men alone with the sword was just something else,” said Akshay excitedly. “Yes, action and stunts do give me a high, that is true. As they say "bandar kitna bhi budha ho jaye voh apni kalabaazi se baaj nahi aata" (laughs out loud). After doing every other genre, I come back to doing action,” he adds.
After having seen Akshay bring the achievements of real people alive on screen in the recent past with Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Padman and Gold , he will be seen in the role of a sikh warrior, Havildar Ishar Singh, who led the Sikh regiment against 10,000 Afghan invaders in a battle in 1897 that took place at Saragarhi.
Directed by Anurag Singh, the film also stars actress Parineeti Chopra. It is due to release on Thursday.
