Vicky Kaushal is currently shooting for his upcoming film ‘Uri’ with Yami Gautam in Serbia. The film is based on Indian army’s surgical strikes in Pakistan occupied Kashmir following the attacks on Uri on September 29, 2016.

While shooting for an action sequence, the actor injured his right arm last week. Vicky returned to Mumbai for a few days over the weekend for a prior commitment.


According to a source close to the film, Vicky had been training daily because the flick requires him to pull off some daredevil stunts. During one such sequence, he injured his arm badly and was in unbearable pain. “The doctors said it was due to muscle inflammation and overexertion. He has been undergoing daily physiotherapy sessions. However, Vicky has resumed the shoot in Serbia despite an injury. The team has made arrangements and planned the schedule in a way to ensure that the injury isn’t aggravated,” added the source.

Get well soon, Vicky!

Meanwhile, for the film, Vicky Kaushal has gained 20 kilos for his character. “Considering the kind of action he’s required to do and the stuff he has to carry as part of his character, Vicky had to gain considerable weight for it. Earlier, he weighed 70 kilos, and now, he’s 90 kilos,” said a source. Vicky Kaushal’s ‘Uri’ produced by Ronnie Screwvala also features Yami Gautam, Paresh Rawal, Kirti Kulhari and Mohit Raina in lead roles.

Vicky Kaushal was last seen in ‘Sanji’ which has crossed the 300 crore mark at the box office. The film which is based on the life of Sanjay Dutt had released on 29th July which received amazing response from critics as well as the audience.
