Akshay Kumar and Parineeti Chopra’s Kesari is one of the most exciting films of the year. After years of planning, back and forth, controversies and much more, the movie is finally complete. It’s up for release on Holi (March 21) and we can’t wait to see it, especially after looking at the promos. The teasers were fantastic, but the trailer took our breath away. Kesari‘s action sequences and plot seem engaging. Some impressive songs have also caught our attention, especially the latest one – Teri Mitti. With the release date just around the corner, we thought of compiling everything you guys need to know about the movie. And present it to you in an interesting way. So read on to know Kesari‘s review, budget, box office collection, controversy, story, cast, stills – all the important information right here.

Kesari Story

From what we know, Kesari revolves around the Battle of Saragarhi (1897). It was the bravest battle ever fought. Why bravest? Well, because 21 Sikh soldiers of the British Indian Army fought more than 10000 Afghans. Havildar Ishar Singh was the leader of the Sikh regiment, which was marked in Kesari (saffron) colour. Symbolising valor, the regiment was protecting Fort Saragarhi, which was an important relay station as the British Empire infiltrated Afghanistan. Though the 20 soldiers under Halvidar Ishar Singh were undisciplined and the Sikh leader of the Army himself was sent to the fort as a punishment, they fought the battle with bravery. Though they all lost their lives in the epic battle, they managed to kill several Afghans and held the fort for a very long time. It is an inspiring tale, which we are sure you’ll love to watch on the big screen.

Kesari Cast

Akshay Kumar and Parineeti Chopra play titular roles. Edward Sonnenblick, R. Bhakti Klein, Mark Bennington, Toranj Kayvon, Rimple Dhindsa play pivotal roles. Vikram Kochhar, Bhawani Muzamil, Mir Sarwar, Sonia Albizuri, Rakesh Chaturvedi Om, amongst others are also a part of Kesari.

Kesari Crew

Anurag Singh is the director of Kesari, who is assisted by AD Harshit Bhatia. The film’s story is written by Girish Kohli and Anurag Singh. And while Parvez Shaikh and Lawrence Woodward are the action directors, Ganesh Acharya and Vijay Ganguly are the choreographers. Amar Butala is the co-producer, while Hiroo Yash Johar, Aruna Bhatia, Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta and Sunir Kheterpal are the co-producers. Navmeet Singh is the line producer.

The music composers include Tanishk Bagchi, Chirrantan Bhatt, Arko, Jasbir Jassi, Gurmoh and Jasleen Royal. On the other hand, Kumaar, Manoj Muntashir and Kunwar Juneja have written the lyrics for the songs. And while the cinematography is done by Anshul Chobey, the film editing is done by Manish More. Lastly, the costume design is by Sheetal Sharma and casting By Jogi Mallang (Jogi).

Kesari Controversies

While Kesari has not run into any controversy yet, there are a few things that did crop up. The first and the biggest one was Salman Khan walking away from the project. Karan Johar had announced a couple of years ago that he along with Salman and Akshay Kumar would produce this film. However, after Salman split with his manager Reshma Shetty, he walked out of this project as well.

Another blip was when Karan Johar announced Parineeti Chopra as the lead heroine of the movie. While he made the announcement, he attached Akshay Kumar’s still from the movie. Twitterati jumped onto it and slammed him and made jokes on KJo. He quickly deleted it and posted the announcement with a picture of Parineeti Chopra.

A set constructed at Wai, Maharashtra also caught fire during the shoot. While reports suggest that fireworks and ammunition used during the filming of the movie set off the fire, no official confirmation has been given. Reportedly, Rs 8 – 10 crore loss was incurred and the shooting was stalled for nearly a month.

Kesari Release date

Kesari is all set to release on Holi, which is on March 21 this year. That means the movie will release on a Thursday. And with that, the action-packed period drama will enjoy a four-day extended weekend.

Bollywood has not only had iconic mother characters, but even some amazing father characters. Yes, while we have seen some intense and strict fathers in Hindi films, there have been some really cool on-screen fathers who totally won our hearts. Not only did these exceptional dads break stereotypes, but their cool stance even entertained us to the fullest. On Father’s Day today (June 16), we bring you some quirky on-screen fathers from Bollywood.

1-Amitabh Bachchan

Big B has broken all norms of being the quirkiest father with 102 Not Out. Yes, a happening father sending his old and boring son (Rishi Kapoor) to the old-age home left many of us laughing. But wasn’t that even cool? Well, earlier even in Waqt, Amitabh Bachchan played quite a trendy father to Akshay Kumar. And his flamboyant father avatar in Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna yet again proved that he is way beyond the quintessential dad.

2- Shah Rukh Khan

Well, Shah Rukh Khan is more than just being a king of romance. He made us literally fall in love with his life coach role as Jahangir Khan in Dear Zindagi. But other than that King Khan has also been quite a cool father on screen. Remember, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai while he was a young-widowed father he was also quite cool around his daughter.

3- Anil Kapoor

Right, from being the lovable Arun bhaiyya to the orphan kids, Anil Kapoor was quite an amazing father figure in films. If you still aren’t convinced, then look back at the funny father he played in Biwi No 1. Even in his latest outing Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, a father with staunch mentality accepting his daughter’s (played by Sonam K Ahuja) sexual orientation cannot get any cooler.

4- Anupam Kher

Dil Wale Dulhania Le Jayenge has been one cult film. And no matter how much we hated Amrish Puri being a daunting dad to Kajol, we totally loved how cool a dad Anupam Kher was to Shah Rukh Khan.  Yes, SRK’s pops was just the kind of dad we all wanted back then.

5- Paresh Rawal

Paresh Rawal has also been quite a notorious father of the big screen. Well, if you remember his character in Judaai, you would surely laugh at the Hasmukhlal who sported a question mark on his forehead. His role in Mere Baap Pehle Aap also was quite the cool father types.

 Let us know which from these was your favourite father? Comment in the section below and stay tuned to CineBlitz for more updates.

While there’s no doubt that mothers are the backbone of any family, fathers too are just as important in their contribution to a family. And on Father’s Day, we celebrate their love and sacrifices. Here we take a look not only at the doting dad’s but the moments and how they made it more memorable for their children:

Shah Rukh Khan with son Abram – We all know how often SRK posts about his kids AbRam, Suhana and Aryan. But it’s his special outings with the munchkin AbRam that caught our attention the most. What truly melted our hearts was the time when SRK who was busy shooting for his film Zero zoomed off to the Swiss Alps with his family for a quick break. Taking to Instagram, the actor posted a slide show of him and AbRam, indulging in cute selfies. Check out the post below

Hrithik Roshan and sons Hridaan and Hrehaan – Hrithik is quite an outdoorsy person when it comes to is family and we’ve seen him on numerous vacays with the two sons. But the one special moment that we found was really adorable was when we saw Hrithik spending time with his sons in the kitchen cooking. Check out his post:

 

Akshay Kumar and daughter Nitara – The action star is also one of the most endearing fathers in B-Town, who even has the names of his children Aarav and Nitara tattooed. In this particular post, we can see the doting dad motivating his six-year-old daughter Nitara as she exercises. Check out the inspirational post:

 

Shabir Ahluwalia and sons Azai and Ivarr – TV star Shabir Ahluwalia is often seen goofing around with his kids Azai and Ivarr. In this one particular post shared by Shabir, the actor is seen riding his kids around… not on a bike, or a car, but on a branch of a tree. Now, that clearly spells fun right? Check out their post below:
