With the new poster, Akshay has now announced the countdown for Kesari, which is slated to hit the screens on March 21.

The film is based on the 1897 Battle of Saragarhi and shows 21 Sikh soldiers fighting against an entire Afghan army of around 10000 soldiers. In the film, Akshay’s character joins the battle to earn back the lost love of his estranged daughter. Kesari also features Parineeti Chopra in the lead. Earlier, the makers released another still from the film in which the actor was seen posing with Parineeti, who was dressed up in a Phulkari dupatta and silver jewellery as part of her look for the film.

The film is being produced by Karan Johar‘s Dharma Productions and has Anurag Singh helming it. Notably, Askhay has got four more releases this year. He has started shooting for another Dharma film, titled Good News with Kareena Kapoor Khan. Other films in Akshay’s kitty apart from Kesari and Good News are Mission Mangal, Housefull 4, and Sooryavanshi this year.
