Vicky Kaushal’s film has now hit a century i.e. earned over Rs 100 crore at the box office in just 10 days. Yes, you have read it right! ‘Uri’ has so far minted Rs 108.90 crore at the box office. The film 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.
This is what Bollywood Bubble had to say about the ‘Uri’, –The film makes your blood boil, you achieve catharsis with every small battle that the Indian army wins and you get goosebumps every time Vicky Kaushal screams, “How’s the josh?”
The “How’s the josh?” dialogue has now become very popular and even India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that while addressing the film fraternity in Mumbai recently. 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.
