Directed by Anurag Singh, who is best known for directing Dil Bole Hadippa! and Jatt & Juliet, the film is bankrolled by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions. Karan Johar announced it officially on his social media handle. "@ParineetiChopra", he tweeted with a photo, which was surprisingly, of Akshay Kumar in his Kesari get up rather than one of Parineeti. See how they bombarded KJo with some hilarious responses.

Meanwhile Parineeti Chopra is shooting for SANDEEP AUR PINKY FARAAR with Arjun Kapoor. He stated that he goofed up with the picture and remarked that Twitter users are quite quick in mocking him about it. On Wednesday, the filmmaker finally revealed the lead actress of "Kesari" and it is none other than Parineeti Chopra. This was big news as the speculation about the female lead in the film was going on since a long time. "So excited to be a part of this legendary journey!"

Kesari is a film based on the Battle of Saragarhi. He shared his first look from the movie, and he is seen sporting a saffron turban and a beard. But on realising that Ajay Devgn had announced a film on the same subject much earlier, the Dabangg Khan chose to walk out of the project, which would have been his first joint production with Johar.
