Kesari making: Akshay Kumar had the best time doing action sequences for the period drama

The makers of upcoming period drama Kesari, starring Akshay Kumar and Parineeti Chopra, on Tuesday released a making video. Directed by Anurag Singh, the film is scheduled to hit screens on March 21.

In the video, Akshay, who is returning to doing action after a long time, said, “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.”

Even, director Anurag shared that the most interesting part to shoot was the climax of the movie. He said, “If you ask me what was the most interesting thing to choreograph, it was the climax where Akshay sir fights over a hundred men alone with his sword. That was just something else.”

Sharing the making video of Kesari on his official Twitter handle, Khiladi Kumar wrote, “Always the happiest when I’m in action and #Kesari kept me more than active!”

Akshay also deliberated on the basic plot of the film. “Kesari is based on the epic battle of Saragarhi which was one of the most heroic battles seen in history. It is the story about the courage of 21 Sikh soldiers who fought against 10,000 invaders to defend their honour. The film also touches upon the never give up attitude the Sikhs have,” he explained.
