Yesterday, he made a serious announcement that the leading actress in his upcoming ambitious period film Kesari, starring Akshay Kumar, is none other than Parineeti Chopra. The actress has a decent fan following and is loved for her bubbly avatars in films.
Producer Karan Johar today confirmed the news on Twitter. People on Twitter were quick enough to find the humour in it.
We can't wait for Akshay and Parineeti to start rolling for the film, this is the first time Parieenti and Akshay will be seen together on screen. "@ParineetiChopra", he tweeted with a photo, which was surprisingly, of Akshay Kumar in his Kesari get up rather than one of Parineeti. Ever since then there were speculations about who will star opposite Akshay in the film. The film is based on Battle of Saragarhi and it remains one of the most anticipated one. He shared his first look from the movie, and he is seen sporting a saffron turban and a beard.
