- Vicky Kaushal will play the officer, who commanded the operation
- This is one story I feel everyone needs to know, said Vicky Kaushal
- Uri is expected to release in September 2018
Ronnie Screwvala said that Uri is the "incredible story of Indians coming together" while Aditya added: "This is the story of what happened in those 11 days. It's an honour and very reassuring to be backed by Ronnie Screwvala and to execute on this vision and what we believe is an engaging and thrilling story inspired by this true life incident." Last year, a terror attack at an army base in Jammu and Kashmir's Uri killed 17 soldiers. 11 days after the attack, the Indian Army retaliated with a surgical strike.
Uri will go on floors next year and is expected to release in September 2018, around time of the second anniversary of the Uri attacks.
