Parineeti Chopra bags female lead in Akshay Kumar’s Kesari

Meet Parineeti Chopra as a fiercely ambitious corporate girl in Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar

Producer Karan Johar took to his Twitter to announce that Parineeti Chopra has been signed to play the female lead in Akshay Kumar’s ‘Kesari’. He wrote, “The lead actress in #KESARI is ……..PARINEETI CHOPRA! @ParineetiChopra.”

Previously there were rumours of Katrina Kaif playing this role. However, it was later reported that Katrina backed out of the film considering Salman Khan’s withdrawal as one of the film’s producers. Parineeti is believed to be playing Kumar’s wife in the film and this will be her second film with Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions after ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ opposite Sidharth Malhotra.

‘Kesari’ is based on 1857 Battle of Saragarhi between Sikh soldiers of the British Indian army and Pashtun Orakzai tribesmen.
