8th June!❤️ On this date exactly a year back we started shooting for URI. And what a year it has been!! The best Roller Coster ride I will ever be on! ❤️❤️❤️ Exactly a week before the shoot (2nd June 2018) we were sitting at our office balcony and waiting for a final call on ‘if URI is happening or not’. I still remember how tense and stressed everyone was and how desperately we were making efforts to somehow cut costs. @vickykaushal09, @merainna and 20 other actors had already gone through one of the most rigorous physical trainings ever for a film. Also on that day, without even questioning me once @yamigautam cut her hair short for the film, which was pretty incredible considering she had to let go of other projects because of her new look. We were making an action film and We didn’t have an action director by then. Part of my team had already left for Serbia. We had already spent a lot of money on preproduction. And we didn’t have actors to play some of the most important roles including the PM and Army General. It was a complete mess but somewhere deep down we all knew this film needs to be made, has to be made no matter what! And it was made and HOW!!😁 Thank you each and everyone of you who showered URI with so much love and affection!! It was truly overwhelming to see people crying, laughing, clapping, whistling basically thoroughly enjoying each and every moment of the film. Trust me those memories are going to stay with me forever. Thank you Indian Army and their families for the incredible sacrifice you make on a daily basis for our country. 🙏 Thank you #Ronnie, @soniyeah22, @pashanjal, @rsvpmovies for all the support, love and guidance. And last but not the least thank you team URI, you are the best bunch of talent in the world!! Each and every actor, technician, crew member was just phenomenal! Thank you, Thank You, Thank You!Dil se Thank You!! 🙏❤️ #URI #urithesurgicalstrike #balidan #TeamUri

Vicky Kaushal’s portrayal of Major Vihaan Singh Shergill made him an instant favourite amongst the Bollywood fans. The ‘Masaan‘ actor gave his blood, sweat and tears for the project and it all showed on the silver screen. The film made Rs 245.36 crore at the box office.

‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’s one particular dialogue “How’s the Josh? High Sir!” has now become a part of folklore. Even, India’s PM Narendra Modi has used this catchphrase. The film also instilled feelings of patriotism, love for your motherhood and sacrifice.
