It's a clash of the titans as Akshay Kumar gears up for his latest project.

The Padman actor revealed the first look of Kesari, in which he's seen looking fierce in a uniform and turban. And we also know that the actor opposite Akshay in the film is Parineeti Chopra!

Karan Johar took to Twitter to share the news:

Kesari is based on the Battle of Saragarhi (1897), which took place between the Sikh soldiers of the British Indian Army and Pashtun Orakzai tribesmen in the North-West Frontier Province (now Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan).

It was a battle in which 21 Sikh soldiers stood against 10,000 men.

Interestingly, Ajay Devgn is also making a film on the same battle called Sons of Sardar: Battle of Saragarhi. However, he postponed his project to avoid a clash with KJo's film. Reportedly, due to the large scale of his film, it'll take around three to four years to complete.
