Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar will be soon seen in an action avatar in ‘Kesari’ as Havildar Ishar Singh, the leader of the 1897 Battle of Saragarhi, trade sources said on Wednesday.
Akshay will be learning traditional artillery, sword fighting and Gatka (an Indian martial art form associated with the Sikhs of the Punjab region) for ‘Kesari’.
“A huge set is currently being set up in the beautiful Wai in Satara where large forts of Saragarhi and Gulistan are being recreated.
The makers have a plan to begin filming the crucial sequences before summer arrives,” the sources said.
The set which is being designed is for war sequences which will feature Akshay Kumar in most of it.
