Looks like Parineeti Chopra’s Bollywood star is finally on the ascent. After Golmaal Again rocked the box office last year, the 29-year-old actress has now bagged another big budget production. Parineeti will be the female lead in Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film, Kesari.

Kesari is based on the Battle of Sargarhi, which took place in 1897 between British Indian Army and Afghan Orakzai tribesmen in North-West Frontier Province in Pakistan. Akshay plays Havildar Ishar Singh, who led the Sikh regiment of the British Indian Army. Directed by Anurag Singh, Kesari will hit the screens on Holi 2019.
