Vicky Kaushal-starrer Uri: The Surgical Strike has received a thumbs-up from audiences across the country, and the film’s catchphrase also seems to have found favour among political leaders.

Speaking at the inauguration of the Atal Setu bridge over the Mandovi river on Sunday, Parrikar said, “How is the josh? How is the josh?

The gathered audience unanimously replied saying, “High Sir”.

Parrikar then said,”I will transfer my josh to you and sit here and speak a few words.”

Incidentally, the current Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman also used the film’s dialogue after she watched it with veterans in Hyderabad and she tweeted it on Sunday.

The popular dialogue from the film has inpired memes, and was even used by Mumbai and Nagpur Police in their recent public service messages on Twitter.
