It’s not a wise move to challenge India’s fittest actor Akshay Kumar for a fight but you can’t say much to a BSF jawan. 

As Akshay visited a BSF camp earlier as part of a promotional event for ‘Kesari’ that releases tomorrow, the star was defeated by a woman officer in a mock fight. Akshay shared a video of the duel on his Facebook stories. 

In the video, Akshay is seen surrounded by BSF jawans. He starts a mock fight with a woman as a song from his film ‘Kesari’ called ‘Ajj Singh Garjega’ starts playing in the background. Although Akshay tried a lot of smart tricks, he was eventually pinned down by the officer to the ground. The two were later seen sharing a laugh as they hugged. 

Sharing the video on Instagram, he wrote: “Always a treat to meet the Jawans from @bsf_india. Their training, passion and enthusiasm is top-notch, always a learning experience.”

Akshay had earlier told Zee News Editor-in-Chief Sudhir Chaudhary that he was proud to have been a part of the script and that the battle of Saragarhi should make it to our history books. He also said that he will not join politics as he is not interested in it but will make good films that tell tales of bravery. 

‘Kesari’ is a story of epic battle between British Indian Army’s Sikh regiment and Afghan tribesmen. The British Indian contingent, comprising 21 Sikh soldiers, was attacked by around 10,000 Afghans.
