The film, directed by Aditya Dhar, is based on the Uri attack of September 2016.
Actor Vicky Kaushal who has had a great run at the box office with films like Raazi, Sanju, and Manmarziyaan will be opening the box office with his latest film Uri in 2019. The actor who seems calm and composed discloses that as an actor he wants to work under pressure.
“I am excited. Pressure is something I want. Every actor wants to test how strong he or she is. I am grateful to Ronnie Screwvala for giving me this opportunity. I want to be in this pressure zone,” he says.
Adding to this, he says, “There are two kinds of people, one who gives you the limelight and the pressure, second that gives you a world full of appreciation. I would want to work under pressure. I am lucky I am getting these projects.”
The film, directed by Aditya Dhar, is based on the Uri attack of September 2016. On September 18, 2016, terrorists from Pakistan attacked a military base in Uri in Jammu and Kashmir leaving 19 Indian soldiers dead. Eleven days later, the Indian Army retaliated with a series of surgical strikes on terrorist camps across the border.
Ask Vicky are there any plans for a special screening of the film for Prime Minister Narendra Mod, and he replies, “We have already shown it to the defence ministry and it is up to Ronnie and the director. I don’t know what plans they have. But we will definitely show it to the bureaucrats again.”
“More than getting their permission, it is an ode and tribute to them. We would like to get validation from them and see how they feel. I don’t know if it is technically possible or not as they have their time constraints, but we would love to show it to them,” he added.
