Based on the historic Battle of Saragarhi — where a contingent of 21 Sikh soldiers were attacked by 10,000 Afghans on September 2, 1897 — Kesari stars Akshay in the role of Havilder Ishwar Singh, who fought till his death to protect the North-West Frontier Province of British India. Parineeti plays Havilder Ishwar Singh's estranged daughter.

Anurag Singh made his Bollywood directorial debut with the Hindi romantic thriller, Raqeeb (2007). He is known for helming successful Punjabi films like Yaar Annmulle, Jatt & Juliet, Jatt & Juliet 2 and Super SinghKesari is scheduled for release on March 21.
