Upon release, Kesari became the highest opener of 2019 with Rs 21.50 crore. The film is also Kumar's second biggest opener after Gold (Rs 25.25 crore). Kesari has outperformed Gully Boy, Total Dhamaal and even Captain Marvel in terms of opening day earnings.

Trade analysts note that while the film's collections marginally dipped on Friday, there was an upward growth on Saturday which will continue on Sunday as well.

Directed by Anurag Singh and produced by Hiroo Yash Johar, Apoorva Mehta, Karan Johar and Sunil Khetarpal, Kesari depicts the Battle of Saragarhi, one of the most valiant clashes in Indian history where a troop of 21 soldiers courageously fought an army of approximately 10,000 Afghan invaders. The film also stars Parineeti Chopra, Mir Sarwar, Vansh Bharadwaj, Jaspreet Singh, Vivek Saini and Vikram Kochhar in supporting roles.
