Battle of Saragarhi seems to be the one thing every filmmaker and television producer is suddenly interested in. As many as three films and a television series is being made on the historic 1897 battle. While Akshay Kumar revealed the first look from his film Kesari on Friday, actor Mohit Raina also didn’t take too much time to share his from upcoming series 21 Sarfarosh: Saragarhi 1897.

Much like Akshay, Mohit is also seen in a khaki uniform and a heavy turban. He plays Havildar Ishar Singh, of the British Indian Army, who led a contingent 21 soldiers to fight against the 10,000 Pashtun Orakzai tribesmen of Afghanistan. The fight, in the North-West Frontier Province, led to the death of all 21 soldiers but is now called one of the greatest stories of bravery in Indian military.

Mohit shared a short clip of Discovery Jeet’s upcoming programmes which included scenes of Mohit firing a gun.

Mohit was last seen in Devon Ke Dev Mahadev with rumoured girlfriend and actor Mouni Roy. He played Lord Shiva while she played Godess Sati.

Apart from Akshay and Mohit, Randeep Hooda and Ajay Devgn are also making films on the same subject.
