The teaser of Uri has been dropped by its makers. Uri starring Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautam and Paresh Rawal in the lead roles is written and directed by Aditya Dhar. The film is inspired by the September 2016 Uri attack and the subsequent surgical strikes conducted in POK by the Indian Army. It will release on January 11, 2019. Uri is produced by Ronnie Screwvala.
On September 18, 2016, 19 soldiers were killed in an early morning attack by Pakistani terrorists at the 12 Infantry Brigade headquarters in Uri. In response, on September 29, the Indian Army’s Special Forces carried out “surgical strikes” on terror launch pads across Line of Control (LoC). Vicky Kaushal play the role of an army officer who leads the soldiers during the surgical strike.
