Akshay Kumar sustained a rib-cage injury on the sets of his forthcoming film Kesari but he is not going to fly back to Mumbai for treatment. The treatment has been delayed to complete the film shoot. Akshay is carrying on with the shoot despite the pain.
Kesari is based on the 1897 Saragarhi battle. The battle was fought between British Indian Army that comprised 21 Sikh soldiers and Afghan Orakzai tribesmen in North-West Frontier Province. The film also features Parineeti Chopra and will hit theatres on Holi 2019. It is directed by Anurag Singh.
The 50-year-old actor suffered an injury in his ribs during the shooting off the climax and had to take a break from the shooting on Wednesday. He has reportedly been advised rest and also has a chopper on standby. Despite several suggestions of going back to Mumbai, Akshay decided to stay on location in Wai. The actor was supposed to wrap the action sequences on Thursday.
