The 50-year-old actor, who is currently busy promoting his upcoming film Padman, said Karan Johar is producing Kesari, which is based on the Battle of Saragarhi.

"The film is titled Kesari and it is being made. I will start this film in January. We will be continuously shooting for it after 'Padman' releases.

"Karan Johar and I are making it. It did not happen," Akshay told reporters here on the sidelines of an event when asked about Salman backing out of the film.
