But on Friday morning, the announcement came out without Salman Khan’s mention. He was to co-produce the film but things didn’t go as per their plan. Akshay Kumar captioned the first look of the film as, “Feeling nothing but immense pride and gratitude while sharing this. Beginning my 2018 with KESARI, my most ambitious film and a lot of passion. Need your best wishes as always." Kesari is being helmed by Anurag Singh. It is based on the one of the bravest battles fought in India, the battle of Saragarhi. It is scheduled to release on Holi.
