Uri is based on the surgical strikes carried out by the Indian Army in Pakistan after 2016's Uri terror attack. The film is directed by Aditya Dhar.
Of the film's success, Vicky Kaushal earlier told news agency IANS, "Till the film is released, you don't have an idea if it is going to work. But the kind of reaction we have received is really overwhelming. It's a surreal feeling that audience has accepted our film with open arms."
Apart from Uri, Vicky Kaushal, 30, is known for his films like Masaan, Raman Raghav 2.0, Raazi, Sanju and Manmarziyaan.
