Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Kesari’ set burnt completely in Maharashtra

A very sad news has come from the set of Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Kesari’ which got burnt completely in Wai, Maharashtra. Cameras also got destroyed on the shoot but so far no casualty is reported. Kesari is an Akshay Kumar film which is produced by Karan Johar and also co-stars Parineeti Chopra. Kesari is a massive film directed by Anurag Singh, who has made biggest of blockbusters in Punjabi film industry mostly starring Diljit Dosanjh. Film is based upon the Battle of Saragarhi fought by Sikh warriors and Akshay is playing the leader of that troop.

Production team takes more than enough measures to make sure that an accident like that never occurs but sometimes things go unseen though exact cause of this fire is not revealed yet. Most of the props and machinery on the set is destroyed since it is burnt completely but no member of cast and crew had been harmed. An incident like this has not been seen in a long time due to the presence of technology and advanced safety measures hence the root cause of this fire must have been something beyond the control of technical department.

Shooting of the film is stopped for now till this calamity is dealt with and producer will have to bear some major losses as Kesari is a period film and sets of those are expensive to build. A period set has a lot of research and detailing to it which absolutely serves the purpose of each and every scene hence the team would have to R&D yet again. Makers still have not come out with an official media statement to which anything can be reflected upon but they are sure trying to make sure that the shooting can get started soon as possible. Release date of the film is 22 March, 2019.
