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."
