Akshay Kumar‘s previous outings have had either social messages or were based on real-life stories. His recent release 2.0 was his first venture in sci-fi genre costarring Rajinikanth. It’s been a while since Akshay Kumar has taken on a full-on action-packed role. The actor will soon be seen in Kesari as Havildar Ishar Singh, the leader of the 1897 Battle of Saragarhi along with Parineeti Chopra.
