Vicky Kaushal has all the reason to celebrate as his film URI: The Surgical Strike has completed two of its successful run at the box office. Vicky Kaushal took to Instagram to share a still from the film URI and said he is elated to know that it has completed 2 months in theatres. He wrote, “#Uri marks 2 months of a successful run in theatres today and continues to receive so much love from you all. Thank You, India!” Uri: The Surgical Strike is based on the surgical strikes carried out by the Indian Army on seven terrorist launchpads across the Line of Control on September 29, 2016, in retaliation to a terrorist attack on an army camp at Uri. 

Despite facing tough competition with the release of films such as Gully Boy, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and Total Dhamaal at the box office, the Aditya Dhar directorial continued to stay strong at the ticket windows. The film also features Yami Gautam, Paresh Rawal, Kirti Kulhari and Mohit Raina in the lead roles. URI: The Surgical Strike received a mixed response from film critics across the country upon its release on January 11. The word of mouth helped the movie mint money and attract more audiences to the theatres. 

Talking about the takeaways from the movie, he exclusively told us, “There were many takeaways for me from the movie. First, on the surface level, I got to know the difference between infantry and the paramilitary commandos, their probation period, their missions. I also gained an insight into the technicalities behind these missions. I met scores of personnel, infantry, and special forces, and got to know a little more about their lives and families. Spirit of the Indian Army is what I took back home and it will stay with me forever and ever. Some of the stories were so unbelievable and fascinating. I would say that URI: The Surgical Strike is perhaps just a drop in the ocean.”
