Kesari’s feat is particularly commendable since Holi release can prove to be bit of a dampener as most theatre halls and malls remain shut during the day in the first half, revealed film exhibitor Akshaye Rathi to HT.
Kesari tells the story of the heroic fight in 1897 between 21 Sikh soldiers of the Sikh regiment of the British Indian Army against a force of 10,000 Pashtun tribesmen.
