The trailer for Akshay Kumar's Kesari dropped today and the netizens are charged up. Here's how they reacted...by making memes, of course.
New Delhi: Joining the ranks of recent biographical movies, the trailer of Akshay Kumar starrer Kesari dropped recently and has already created quite a buzz, especially the dialogues from the three-minute long trailer.
The actor is sporting a fierce Sikh warrior look as he plays Havildar Ishar Singh, who lead the Sikh soldiers in the Battle of Saragarhi of 1897 in which 21 Sikh soldiers of the British Indian Army fought against 10,000 Afghan invaders. The Sikhs chose to fight to the death and the post was recaptured two days later by another British Indian contingent.
The trailer clip starts with the traditional Ek Omkar chant and shows the grit of the martyrs. Apart from instilling pride in every Indian viewer, the trailer has some savage dialogues such as "Aaj meri pagdibhi Kesari, jo bahega mera woh lahoo bhi Kesari, aur mera jawaab bhi Kesari."
However, Kumar's retort in the clip to a Pashtun who claimed to kill all the Sikh soldiers, 'Chal Jhootha' has driven Twitterati wild even as some of the netizens vehemently protested against them. Check out the clip that sparked the meme onslaught:
Now, here's how the Twitterati reacted to the punchline of the Kesari trailer.
