Akshay and Kjo are back together and unlike previous times this time it is for a battle movie!
Akshay is one of the highest paid actors in the industry and rightly so, the man has already started filming for his next all while promoting his upcoming release ‘Padman’ early this year. Akshay took to social media to announce the initiation of the project with a picture of himself in the character and a tweet which said, “Feeling nothing but immense pride and gratitude while sharing this. Beginning my 2018 with #KESARI, my most ambitious film and a lot of passion. Need your best wishes as always.” Karan also took to Twitter and stated, “Exceptionally excited about #KESARI...the BRAVEST story ever told....we begin our journey today... we seek your love and blessings....”
Kjo has three upcoming projects in 2018 and each is equally interesting. The first being Alia Bhatt starrer Raazi which is a period thriller, the second is Dhadak where Kjo is again introducing two new debutants – Sridevi’s daughter Jhanvi Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan Khatter, lastly Simmba starring Ranveer Singh who plays a crazy cop in the movie. The film is co-produced by Akshay and Kjo and is based on the battle of Saragarhi. The movie is the third movie where Akshay will portray a sikh man after ‘Singh is King’ and ‘Singh is Bling’. Directed by Anurag Singh, this is the first among the three movies which are based on the battle of Saragarhi. The other two are – Ajay Devgn’s Sons of Sardaar and Randeep Hooda’s The Battle of Sargarhi. Akshay Kumar’s Padman is all set to hit the theatre on January 25 this year while Kesari will be released on Holi.
