Akshay Kumar, who is basking in the glory of his box-office hit, PadMan is already shooting for his next film, Kesari. The actor took to Twitter to share a photo from the sets of the film which is based on the Battle of Saragarhi.

“Innocent smiles galore on set today... Akshay Kumar shooting with these lovely children playing Afghani kids in Kesari based on the Battle Of Saragarhi, one of the bravest battles fought in India,” said Akshay on Twitter.

Directed by Anurag Singh, Kesari is slated for 2019 Holi release. Co-produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, the film also stars Parineeti Chopra.

Akshay is also gearing up for the release of his next film, Gold on 15 August. The film is said to be loosely based on the life of Balbir Singh, who was a part of the team that won the first Olympic medal for India as a free nation in 1948.

It’s going to be yet another busy year for Akshay.

(The Quint, in association with BitGiving, has launched a crowdfunding campaign for an 8-month-old who was raped in Delhi on 28 January 2018. The baby girl, who we will refer to as 'Chhutki', was allegedly raped by her 28-year-old cousin when her parents were away. She has been discharged from AIIMS hospital after undergoing three surgeries, but needs more medical treatment in order to heal completely. Her parents hail from a low-income group and have stopped going to work so that they can take care of the baby. You can help cover Chhutki's medical expenses and secure her future. Every little bit counts. Click here to donate.)
