Published: 23rd December 2017

Akshay Kumar says he and superstar Salman Khan couldnt work on Kesari together but he is making the film with filmmaker Karan Johar.

Salman had teamed up with Akshay for a project in which the latter was to play the hero. Salman was to co-produce it with Karan.

Asked to comment on Salman backing out of the project Kesari, Akshay said: "Yes, we couldn't do it. I am making the film with Karan Johar and that's it."

What's the film's progress?

Akshay said: "The title has been finalised as Kesari. I will start working on the film in January. We will be continuously shooting for it after the release of 'Padman'."

Kesari will be based on Battle of Saragarhi. 

Asked about Padman clashing with Neeraj Pandey's Aiyaary at the box office on January 26 next year, Akshay said: "Both the films are absolutely different from each other. Neeraj Pandey (director) is a dear friend.

"And, yes, this word ‘clash' has actually come from media. We have no problem in releasing films. There are around 4,000-5,000 screens in India and my film is screened in 2,800 screens. I think it's fair enough."
