The idea of making the film was to instil a sense of pride in the hearts of every Indian and to highlight the incredible service of the armed forces of our nation. I’m honoured to be a part of this initiative wherein Uri will be showcased across 500 theaters in the state on Kargil Vijay Diwas.
Fans of the movie will be glad to know that the team behind Uri, Vicky Kaushal, Aditya Dhar and Ronnie Screwvala, are soon returning in a film called Ashwatthama which will be a superhero movie.
