Remember the historic union of Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan and Karan Johar which was to happen for The Battle Of Saragarhi?
While Akshay was to play the lead in this historical, Salman Khan and Karan Johar were to jointly co-produce this lavish take on one of the bravest chapters from the history of the Indian Freedom Movement. Akshay was to play Havaldar Ishar Singh , the military commander of 21 Sikh soldiers during British India who on 12 September 1897 during what came to be famously known as the Battle Of Saragarhi led his men through a deathly battle against thousands of Afghani invaders.
The project announced in January 2017 was to start shooting in mid-2017. …no sign of shooting.
“And you won’t see any shooting for that film either,” says an informed source. “The script is nowhere near ready.Akshay is now busy with his other assignments till the end of 2018. Producers Salman Khan and KaranJohar have also moved on.In the meanwhile Aamir’s Thugs Of Hindostan occupies the same genre and space. So it looks like Yash Raj has beaten Karan Johar to that big historic epic boxoffice-space.It doesn’t look like Battle Of Saragarhi will happen.”
