Kesari is an upcoming drama film directed by Anurag Singh. It is based on the Battle of Saragarhi and stars Akshay Kumar and Parineeti Chopra in the lead roles. This is the first time that Parineeti and Akshay will be seen on the silver screen together. The movie was originally meant to be co-produced by Karan Johar and Salman Khan, though the latter backed out late last year.
