Ajay Devgn Unveils ‘Sons Of Sardaar’ Poster

Ajay Devgn, who will be producing Sons Of Sardaar, an epic war film revolving around the Battle of Saragarhi, unveiled the poster of the film on his Twitter page today.

Taking to his Twitter page, Devgn wrote, “Unveiling @SonsOfSardaar My tribute to Warriors of Saragarhi: A tale of Rage, of Love, of Bravery.” The poster shows Devgn wearing a khaki uniform and battling with Afghani tribesmen. Sons Of Sardaar 2 is based on the historic Battle of Saragarhi which was fought during the Tirah Campaign on 12 September 1897 between 21 Sikhs of the 36th Sikh Regiment (now the 4th Battalion of the Sikh Regiment) of British India, defending an army post, and more than10,000 Afghan and Orakzai tribesmen.

The Battle at Saragarhi is one of eight stories of collective bravery published by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization). It has been mentioned as one of the five most significant events of its kind in the world which includes the Battle of Thermopylae associated with the heroic stand of a small Greek force against the mighty Persian Army of Xerxes I in 480 B.C.

Sons Of Sardaar is slated to release during Diwali next year
