Vicky Kaushal starrer ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ is doing extremely well at the box office. The film, which is directed by Aditya Dhar, has turned to be a big hit at box office and has so far earned over Rs 160 crores. The film also stars Yami Gautam and Paresh Rawal in pivotal roles. It is financed by Ronnie Screwvala under the film production banner of RSVP Movies. ‘Uri’ has been appreciated by many for its powerful and strong content.

Notably, ‘Uri’ is based on India’s surgical strike inside Pakistani terror camps in 2016. This was in retaliation of Pakistani terrorists killing 19 Indian soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri sector.

However, the Uttar Pradesh government led by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday declared the film ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ tax-free. According to the order, the film will be exempted from the State GST but the cinegoers will have to continue paying the Central GST. It means that a total of 18 per cent tax levied on film tickets priced above Rs. 100, the audience will have to pay only 9 per cent. For film tickets priced below Rs 100, the audience will have to pay only 6 per cent tax instead of the usual 12 per cent.

Also, noted film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the big news on his Twitter account. Take a look:

This is certainly a good news for the makers of ‘Uri’ as well as the cinegoers.

Importantly, Vicky Kaushal has had a bumper 2018 with supporting roles in ‘Raazi’ and ‘Sanju’. But with ‘Uri’, he has proved his mettle and showed that he can carry the film on his own shoulders as a solo actor.
