‘Kesari’ is a true story about a war fought between 21 soldiers of the Sikh regiment, versus 10,000 invaders from the West. Akshay Kumar plays the role of Havildar Ishar Singh, and the film also stars Parineeti Chopra in a key role.

The trailer also has the dialogue which stands testimony to the title of the film – “Aaj meri pagdi bhi Kesari, jo bahega mera lahu bhi Kesari, aur mera jawaab bhi Kesari.” Akshay Kumar’s Sikh regiment took on the Afghan tribesmen in September 1897 in what is known as a deadly battle fought unto death. The trailer impresses on a lot of counts – including graphics, visual effects, music, and simply the sheer valour with which the soldiers fought! Watch it here –
