‘Kesari’ poster: Akshay Kumar, Parineeti Chopra sizzle as a Punjabi couple


A new poster of ‘Kesari’ was unveiled and it showed Akshay Kumar and Parineeti Chopra as Punjabi munda and Punjabi kudi. It’s a wrap up picture and Akshay Kumar wrote on social media, “And it’s a wrap for #Kesari...a film which swells up my chest with immense pride. See you in cinemas on 21st March,2019.”

‘Kesari’ based on the famous Battle of Saragarhi will see Akshay enacting the role of Havildar Ishar Singh who led the Sikh Regiment against Afghan tribesmen in a battle in 1897 that took place at Saragarhi.

Speaking about the film earlier, Akshay had said, “I’ve started shooting for my film Kesari, where I’m in the heaviest turban and beard I’ve ever had to wear. So I shaved my head to make my life a little easier. I’m known for hating wigs, prosthetics and so on, and Kesari is quite demanding. It’s probably my favourite look, though it’s taxing to fight and sweat in this avatar. But I wouldn’t change it for the world.”

Directed by Anurag Singh, Kesari will hit theatres on Holi 2019.

Sharing the same poster, Parineeti Chopra wrote, “Anytime I watched a war movie, it was the love story of those brave men that kept me going.. so proud to be a part of this epic experience!!! Thank you Akshay sir, Kjo and Anurag sir for allowing me to be a part of your vision. You all have made one of the most beautiful movies people will ever see!! People - Don’t miss it on 21st March 2019!!! #KESARI @akshaykumar @karanjohar @dharmamovies @apoorva1972 #AnuragSingh #CapeOfGoodFilms #SunilKheterpal”

In the picture, Pari donned a simple salwar-suit, paired with blue dupatta, while Akshay Kumar sports a purple kurta with a grey-blue turban.

On the other hand, Karan Johar tweeted about the film wrap-up, “Film wrap for @akshaykumar and @parineetichopra !! A true historic account of one of the bravest battles ever fought!!!! #KESARI!!! Releasing 21st March 2019!!! So proud to have told this story.... directed by Anurag Singh!!”
