The new poster shows 21 Sikh soldiers standing in the form of a pyramid with Akshay Kumar standing in the middle, wearing an orange turban and holding a rifle in his hand. 'Kesari' is based on the Battle of Saragarhi and revolves around the Sikh regiment who, despite being outnumbered, fought against the Afghan army with all their might in the 1890s.
Given his love for fitness, there was no way on earth Akshay could have let this day slide by like that. While we were busy gorging on delicious food in the morning or watching the parade, Akshay celebrated Republic Day by going on a hike with wife Twinkle and daughter Nitara.January 26, 2019
