Get ready for #GlimpsesOfKesari from 2 pm onwards. #Kesari”

Directed by Anurag Singh, ‘Kesari’ will aim at retelling this battle fought between the British Indian contingent of 21 Sikh soldiers going up against 10,000 Afghan tribesmen in a fight to death 1897.

The film will wage war on the box office when it releases on 21 March 2019.
