The trailer of ‘Uri’, that released yesterday, took the social media by storm and now everyone is eagerly waiting for the film’s release. The film depicts a defining moment in India’s military history. Ahead of the film’s release, Bollywood Bubble spoke to the actor about whether the film’s team is planning to host a special screening of the film for the Prime Minister and the Defense Forces since they played a very important role in the surgical strike.
Replying to our query, Vicky said, “We have already shown it to the Defense department and it is up to Ronnie Screwvala (film’s producer) and the director Aditya Dhar. I don’t know what plans they have. But we will definitely show it to the bureaucrats and the defence department again.”
The actor further added, “More than getting their permission, this film is an ode and tribute to them. We would like to get their validation from them and see how they feel. I don’t know if it is technically possible or not as they have their time constraints. However, we would love to show them our film.”
‘Uri’ is based on a real-life incident. The film’s story revolves around the surgical strike conducted by the Indian Army inside Pakistani terror launch pads. Also starring Paresh Rawal, Yami Gautam, Kirti Kulhari and Mohit Raina, the film is all set to hit the silver screens on January 11, 2019.
