Film Uri: The Surgical strike is undoubtedly a big milestone in Vicky Kaushal’s acting career. Bud did you know that he almost rejected the opportunity to play the role of Major Vihan Shergill in Uri as he didn’t connect with the film at first.
The film which was released in 2019, is based on the surgical strike in Uri. Vicky Kaushal’s catchphrase ‘how’s the josh’ became widely popular. Talking about the film Vicky said, “Uri was something I was gonna skip. In the middle of shooting Raazi, I read the film, maybe I was tired, I went to work next day not feeling connected to it.”
However, his dad convinced him to take it up. “My dad found the script & read it. He told me it will be the biggest mistake if I didn’t do it. I asked for more time. Read the script again. And got really excited to do it,” the actor added.
Directed by Aditya Dhar, Uri also starred Yami Gautam. Not only did the film perform well at the box office by collecting ₹245.36 crore it also took Vicky Kaushal’s popularity a notch higher.
Vicky will next be seen in Sam Bahadur, in which he plays the role of Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw. He also has a superhero action film The Immortal Ashwatthama with Uri director Aditya Dhar and Mr Lele in pipeline.
