In an interview with indianexpress.com, Vicky Kaushal had earlier expressed, “The topic of patriotism is so relevant today. It is like we are defining what patriotism is. Is it about showing and expressing patriotism or about feeling it? In times like today where we are more vocal about patriotism, it was a huge task to tell this story and convey the message more responsibly. And hats off to Ronnie Screwvala to back this project and to Aditya Dhar for doing this,” the actor said.
Directed by Aditya Dhar, Uri: The Surgical Strike releases on January 11.
