Uri: The Surgical Strike hits the screens today and we are beyond excited to watch it. The actors of the film, Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam have been busy with the promotions of the movie and we sat them down to talk about the film in depth. It’s never easy to pay homage to our martyrs, but our hearts are filled with gratitude and respect for these soldiers who lost their lives protecting our country.
The real Uri incident happened two years and four months ago. What was it like reliving the horror? What emotions were felt during those moments? It feels like a really intense and poignant film that will fill us all with a sense of respect for the fallen soldiers, and more, a sense of pride for our nation.
Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam were asked about the process of choosing their scripts and to be honest, they choose it quite wisely. Being a part of the army is no cakewalk, and having to make it into a film, immersing oneself into those particular characters, and then executing the action is a daunting challenge. Vicky and Yami talk about how they made a visit to Lucknow, where the incident happened. Watch the video below for details.
Vicky Kaushal, has in the past had hits like Raazi, Sanju and Manmarziyaan and Yami Gautam, films like Kaabil opposite Hrithik Roshan. We have a good sense that this movie will wow the audiences, not just for the real life story depiction, but also for the kind of passion the actors bring to the table. Let us know what you all think.
