Producer Ronnie Screwvala announced his next project titled Uri. The film features Vicky Kaushal, who will play the role of a lead commander-in-chief.
Story of the movie based on India’s greatest ever surgical strike conducted in POK by the Indian Army last year, which was a result of the URI attacks of September 2016.
Vicky is playing the lead commander-in-chief who led this operation of the surgical strike and led the group of paratroopers post the Uri attack. For this part, Vicky will be undergoing some paramilitary training for a month to bulk up before starting the shoot of the film.
Other cast members not announced officially. The movie will be directed by debutante Aditya Dhar.
Speaking about the movie Vicky said, “When this film came to me and we had this discussion. I was really thrilled and kicked about it because this is one story that I feel that everyone needs to know. One of the fantastic army operations that the Indian army has conducted and with great efficiency. I also feel it is a great opportunity and also a responsibility for all of us to portray this story.”
The film will go on floors early next year after Vicky wraps up the shoot of ‘Raazi’ in which he’s paired opposite Alia Bhatt.
