A massive fire broke out on the sets of Akshay Kumar’s film ‘Kesari’ at a village in Maharashtra’s Satara district. It is learnt that nobody was hurt. The shooting for the film is taking place at Pimpode Budruk village in Wai tehsil, around 30 km from Satara.
Akshay will essay the character of Havaldar Ishar Singh, the military commander of 21 Sikh regiment, who on September 12, 1897, fought bravely against Afghani invaders in the war which eventually came to be known as the battle of Saragarhi.
Parineeti Chopra, who has also been roped in for the film, will be seen in the role of Eesha, daughter of Ishar Singh while television renowned actor Mohit Raina will be seen playing her fiancé. Directed by Anurag Singh, ‘Kesari’ is slated to hit screens in March next year.
