Actor Akshay Kumar and filmmaker Karan Johar made a blockbuster announcement on Tuesday. The duo have collaborated for Kesari, a film based on the Battle Of Saragarhi. "Extremely excited to see this exceptional and brave story unfold!!!." KJo tweeted with a picture divulging details about the film. Kesari will be headlined by Akshay and is scheduled for a Holi release (2019). "Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar proudly present Kesari based on one of the bravest battles fought in India 'The Battle of Saragarhi.' Directed by Anurag Singh and starring Akshay Kumar. Releasing Holi 2019," read a post shared by KJo's Dharma Productions' official Twitter handle.

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.

Earlier today, KJo made a mini-announcement about the film's release and tweeted this.
 

Akshay, last seen in Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, has Rajinikanth's 2.0 (his first Tamil film) and Padman in the pipeline. Karan Johar last directed Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
