Akshay Kumar Star Kesari, released last year, took the audience by storm and the film was praised. But for the lesser known, Randeep Hooda also made a film about the same story of the Battle of Saragarhi that was put on hold. The actor has now opened up to not see Anurag Singh’s direction and how he is still upset that his film didn’t make it.
At the same time, Akshay Kumar made headlines Kesari and Randeep Hooda star film on the same topic were the talk of the city. The story was about the legendary Battle of Saragarhi, in which 21 Sikh soldiers from the British battalion fought with 10,000 Afghan tribesmen. Unfortunately, Randeep’s film did not see the light of day.
When asked if Randeep had seen Akshay Kumar’s film, the actor said, according to a Mumbai Mirror report, “No, it didn’t appeal to me very much.”
When he talked about his version being postponed and still annoyed, he added, “It hurt that the audience couldn’t see what would probably have been a more authentic version with more real emotions of the story. Apart from that, you will learn to continue. During the trip I learned the principles of Sikhism and I am now a better person. “
In the meantime, supported by Karan Johars Dharma Productions, Kesari became a mass favorite and the film caressed the right chain of patriotism that found its way into the hearts of the audience.
