While promoting the film, Vicky Kaushal got to know about the families of the Uri martyrs who lived in Lucknow. He requested the ‘Uri’ team to reach out to them for a meeting. The families agreed on meeting the star cast of the film. Later, they shared their experiences with Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam.

The two actors, who spent a considerable amount of time with the kin of the martyred soldiers, were visibly emotional post the meeting. Vicky said, “This was the first time in my life that I got to meet the family members of the Bravehearts, who laid down their lives in the line of duty.”

The actor further added, “I didn’t know what to say to them; all I could do was just hold their hands and bow my head in gratitude and respect. A child from one of the families, who had lost his elder brother in the Uri attack, when asked what he wants to become when he grows up replied, ‘Fauji’. I salute the spirit of not just our armed forces but also of their brave families.”

The film ‘Uri’ showcases the operation initiated by the Indian Army in retaliation to the terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri, during which 19 Indian soldiers were killed.

Produced by RSVP movies and directed by Aditya Dhar, the film has Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautam and Paresh Rawal in pivotal roles.

‘URI’ is one of the most anticipated films and it is the first film of Bollywood to release on 11th January 2019.
