Theatre exhibitionists are looking forward to enjoying a good holiday extended weekend thanks to Holi from March 21. There are some major releases to watch out for this week, a couple from Hollywood and a couple from Bollywood. Of course, most of the eyes will be on Kesari, which marks Akshay Kumar's first release of the year 2019. Kesari is based on the 1897 Battle of Saragarhi and also stars Parineeti Chopra as the female lead. Kesari Star Akshay Kumar Wants To See a Chapter on Battle of Saragarhi in History Textbooks.
Akshay Kumar's turbaned look as Havaldar Ishar Singh has got him much appreciation. This is the first mainstream movie that looks into the famous battle where 21 Sikhs from the British-Indo regiment withstood 10,00 plus Afghani invaders and lost their lives in the process. Kesari is directed by Anurag Singh, while Karan Johar is one of the producers of this historical drama. At the box office, the movie is expected to take a good opening, thanks to Akshay Kumar's star-power, Karan Johar's brand value and the Holi advantage.

The second Bollywood film, Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota, is an unusual film to compete with Akshay Kumar at the box office.
