Uri released in theaters on January 11 along with Anupam Kher’s The Accidental Prime Minister. While the latter lost its hold on the box office, the Aditya Dhar directorial continues to attract viewers. It is expected to earn more as there is no big release scheduled for this weekend.
Before celebrating the success of their film, Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautam, Aditya Dhar and Ronnie Screwvala met defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman on the occasion of Army Day on Tuesday. Sitharaman took to Twitter to congratulate the film’s team.
Uri is based on 2016 Indian Army’s surgical strikes on terror launch pads across Linc of Control as a retaliation for the Uri attack that claimed the lives of 17 army personnel.
