The shooting of Kesari in Wai, starring Akshay Kumar, as of now, has come to a halt due to a severe blast that destroyed a set.

The Gold actor had already shot for a war scene today and soon after he left, the whole set turned into ashes.

Fortunately, no one was injured in the blast. But the sad news is that more 10 days were left for the shoot. The makers will have to re-build the entire set again.

Recently, the Khiladi shared his look for the film on Twitter and can be seen sporting a long thick beard.

Donning a saffron turban, Akshay Kumar has sun rising behind him.

Kesari is a war drama based on the Battle of Saragarhi in which an army of 21 Sikhs fought against the Afghans in 1897.

It stars Akshay Kumar and Parineeti Chopra in the lead roles and is directed by Anurag Singh.

The film is all set to release during Holi 2019.
