- Kesari will be headlined by Akshay
- "Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar proudly present Kesari," KJo tweeted
- Earlier this year, Akshay, KJo and Salman together announced this film
Here's how Akshay and Karan Johar made the announcement.
Earlier this year, Akshay, KJo and Salman Khan together announced this film. However, it was reported that since Ajay Devgn is already making a film on the same subject, he asked Salman not to make another film. Meanwhile, Randeep Hooda is also doing a film based on The Battle of Saragarhi, in which 21 Sikh soldiers fought 10,000 Afghans. Kesari is the third film on the same subject.
Meanwhile, it is for the first time that Akshay has collaborated with Karan Johar, who happens to be his wife Twinkle Khanna's best friend.
