A per reports, the makers of Kesari have got Lawrence Woodward (stunt coordinator of films like Oscar-winning Mad Max: Fury Road and Moulin Rouge) to choreograph the action sequences.
A source revealed the daily, "Lawrence has already met the makers on his last visit to Mumbai and will be returning in December to start prep with Akshay. Kesari is heavy on action and Lawrence will be training the actor in sword-fighting besides rehearsing for other action sequences, which also includes hand-to-hand combat. They start shooting from the first week of January in Mumbai, followed by a schedule in Wai, a town in Satara district where huge sets of the Saragarhi and Gulistan forts, as well as a village, will be erected and then later at Spiti Valley in Himachal Pradesh."
Kesari will go on floors early next year and will hit the screens in 2019.
