Apart from Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam in lead roles, the film also featres classic actors like Rajit Kapoor, Kirti Kulhari, Mansi Parekh Gohil and Swaroop Sampat. It also marks the Bollywood debut of 'Har Har Mahadev' actor Mohit Raina.
'Uri' has hugely benefitted from the positive word of mouth publicity. The film is based on 2016 Indian Army's surgical strike in Pakistan as a retaliation of the Uri attacks. It is written and directed by debutant Aditya Dhar. It is produced by Ronnie Screwvala under his banner RSVP Movies.
A few days back, 'Uri: The Surgical Strike' was declared tax-free in Uttar Pradesh by Yogi Adityanath government.
It hit the screens on January 11, 2019, and clashed with Anupam Kher's 'The Accidental Prime Minister' at the Box Office.
