Karan Johar & Akshay Kumar’s Kesari ropes in stunt coordinator of Mad Max!
The makers of Kesari have roped in the best Hollywood stunt coordinator of Mad Max: Fury Road to choreograph the stunt scenes.
It is a known fact that Karan Johar and Akshay Kumar are collaborating again after 'Brothers' for the upcoming film Kesari. The film is based on the Battle of Saragarhi where Akshay plays the key role of Havildar Ishar Singh, who led the British Indian contingent of 21 Sikhs of the 36th Sikhs and fought to his death. Now the latest development in the film is that the makers have roped in act stunt coordinator from Hollywood Lawrence Woodward who is known to manage and choreograph stunts of Oscar-winning Mad Max: Fury Road and Moulin Rouge among others.
Earlier Salman Khan was also a part of this association but he opted out. Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar however, are very kicked and excited about the project. Reports suggest that the makers have roped in Parineeti Chopra as the female lead. The film is in its initial stages of developments and will release during Holi 2019.
A source informed the tabloid, "Lawrence has already met the makers on his last visit to Mumbai and will be returning in December to start prep with Akshay. Kesari is heavy on action and Lawrence will be training the actor in sword-fighting besides rehearsing for other action sequences, which also includes hand-to-hand combat. They start shooting from the first week of January in Mumbai, followed by a schedule in Wai, a town in Satara district where huge sets of the Saragarhi and Gulistan forts, as well as a village, will be erected and then later at Spiti Valley in Himachal Pradesh."
