Few days back it is mentioned that Ajay Devgn is planning some big with Son of Sardaar 2. Film is slated for release on Diwali 2017. Finally he has confirmed the news today in micro blogging site Twitter. He mentioned that Son of Sardaar will be based on Epic battle of Saragarhi. Film will match the scale of Hollywood war film 300.
The famous 'Battle of Saragarhi' was fought on September 12, 1897, by 21 Sikhs of the 4th Battalion of the Sikh Regiment, who gave up their lives defending an army post, fighting against 10,000 Afghans. The battle occurred in the North-West Frontier Province and is now named the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and is part of Pakistan. The 21 Sikh contingent was led by Havildar Ishar Singh and they all fought to death.
Apparently, they had a brave cook too who also fought with them and died. So they were actually 22 of them. Some historians consider it one of the greatest military battles as a result every year September 12 is celebrated as 'Saragarhi Day' across many parts of the world and in India. The epic poem 'Khalsa Bahadur' has also been written in the memory of these brave men.
