Kesari brings to celluloid the courage and valour of 21 Sikhs of the 36th Sikh Regiment (now the 4th Battalion of the Sikh Regiment) of British India. They defended a British Army post in 1897 against more than 10,000 Afghan and Orakzai tribesmen who invaded it. The film has managed to fare exceedingly well in India’s northern regions.

Kesari, in fact, earned the biggest opening weekend collection for a Bollywood film in 2019 and crossed the Rs 50 crore mark in mere three days of its release on April 21. Kesari is produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Sunir Khetarpal's Azure Entertainment.
