Such has been the craze that more and more people are thronging the theatre each day. In a week of its release, Kesari entered the Rs 100-crore mark.

The film based on the battle of Saragarhi is unstoppable at the box office. On the eighth day of its release, Kesari has collected Rs 5.85 crore, thus taking the total to Rs 105.86 crore.

‘Kesari’ is helmed by Anurag Singh and set the cash counters ringing. The audience has given it a big thumbs up and it has benefitted hugely from a positive word of mouth publicity.

Directed by Anurag Singh, Kesari features Akshay as Havildar Ishar Singh, who led the 36th Sikh Regiment of the British Indian Army in the Battle Of Saragarhi, which was fought in 1897. The movie tells the powerful story of 21 Sikh soldiers fighting valiantly against 10,000 Afghan troops.

This is the first time that Parineeti Chopra has been paired opposite the Khiladi Kumar. Pari has a guest appearance, as Havildar Ishar Singh’s wife.
