With several posters dropping in, Akshay Kumar, starrer ‘Kesari’ had its trailer released on Thursday. Kesari is a dramatised version of the Battle of Saragarhi of 1897, in which, legend has it, 21 Sikh soldiers of the British Indian Army held their positions against 10,000 Afghani tribesmen.

The attackers are described in the promotional material as “invaders”. The film is being sold as a patriotic drama with heaps of blood-drenched action.

Kesari trailer begins with Akshay’s character Havildar Isher Singh talking about a British officer calling India the land of cowards. The trailer is impressive with rustic war scenes, an unseen technique of sword fighting and catchy dialogues as the Sikh soldiers wearing saffron turbans go on to face the enemy in the battlefield.

The trailer also shares a glimpse of the female lead Parineeti Chopra, who looks helpless but filled with pride as Akshay heads into battle.

Akshay, who is busy experimenting with roles with each passing film, has yet again picked an interesting storyline for his upcoming film. Directed by Anurag Singh, the film also stars Parineeti Chopra and is set to hit the screens on March 21.
