Vibha Chopra, Head-Global Syndication and International Film Distribution, ZEE Entertainment, said in a statement, “Kesari is a rare gem that transcends boundaries. It’s a tale which will resonate with audiences across the globe and its successful run at the global box office proves that. Japan is not a traditional or a mainstream market like the US, UK or the Middle East and we are excited to see how the diaspora reacts to an acclaimed title like Kesari which was loved globally.”
Akshay Kumar essayed the role of Havildar Ishar Singh, the leader of the 1897 Battle of Saragarhi. Kesari, directed by Anurag Singh and bankrolled by Dharma Productions, also starred Parineeti Chopra. It released on Holi, March 21, 2019.
