‘Uri’s iconic dailogue ‘How’s the Josh?’ registered as a film title
Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam starrer ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ has got an overwhelming response from all quarters. One dialogue from the movie, “How’s the Josh?” has become really famous. Even the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi and other politicians were seen using this dialogue in events. In an exclusive interview with Cine Blitz, director Aditya Dhar revealed that he has got the dialogue “How’s the Josh?” registered as a film title.
Aditya said, “Yes, we have registered the line as a film title and I do hope to use it soon someday. It’s a line used by the army so it can’t be copyrighted. In fact, people should use it freely. That’s the beauty of it.”
Aditya further said, “It’s not just about the line becoming so popular. I’m happier about the fact that it’s being used in such a positive light across as an encouragement. That is far more important and special for me.”
Earlier Aditya revealed why he came up with this dialogue. He said, “As a child I remember visiting Army Clubs, where I had a senior officer use it to encourage the kids. There was this Brigadier who would ask the kids with shouts of ‘How’s the Josh’ and would give chocolates to the one who shouted, ‘High Sir’ the loudest. That has remained with me. Then while researching for the film, I did see some other officers use it as well.”
‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ was successful at the box office and it entered the 200 crore club.
