New Delhi: Bollywood actor, Akshay Kumar released another poster from his upcoming Indian period-war-drama film, ‘Kesari’, which is based on the Battle of Saragarhi where 21 Sikhs fought against 10,000 Afghans in 1897.

Directed by Anurag Singh, Kesari is based on the battle of Saragarhi fought between the British Indian army’s Sikh Regiment and Afghan tribesmen in September 1897. The British Indian contingent comprising 21 Sikh soldiers were attacked by around 10,000 Afghans and decided to fight to death, which is considered by some as one of history’s greatest last-stands.
