After playing a man who takes an initiative to help out women with menstrual hygiene problems in Pad Man, Akshay Kumar was spotted enjoying shooting with children from Afghanistan for his next film ‘Kesari’.

Akshay took to Twitter on Thursday without revealing the location and wrote, “Innocent smiles galore on set today. Shooting with these lovely children playing Afghani kids in ‘Kesari’ based on the Battle of Saragarhi, one of the bravest battles fought in India.”

Akshay has teamed up with filmmaker Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions for the movie, being directed by Anurag Singh. The actor also shared an image in which he is seen posing with the children. He is sporting a saffron turban and a beard in the photograph.

“Kesari”, which is slated for 2019 Holi release, will also feature Parineeti Chopra.
