The teaser got positive reactions from fans. While one of them wrote, “#kesari gonna rule & will rewrite the history of Indian Cinema.” several others expressed their excitement about the film.
Akshay has teamed up with Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions for the movie, being directed by Anurag Singh. Kesari, which was meant to be a collaboration among three of Bollywood biggies, Salman Khan, Akshay and Karan, went on floors in January without the Sultan star.
Speaking about the film, Akshay had earlier said, “I’m known for hating wigs, prosthetics and so on, and Kesari is quite demanding. It’s probably my favourite look, though it’s taxing to fight and sweat in this avatar. But I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Apart from this, Akshay Kumar will also be seen in the films like Good News, Mission Mangal and Housefull 4 in his kitty, while Parineeti will be seen opposite Siddharth Malhotra in Jabariya Jodi.
While acting for the film Parineeti Chopra said “It has been a dream to work with Akshay for a long time. He is a Punjabi and so am I. And, we are doing a Punjabi film together.”
