New Delhi: Vicky Kaushal has emerged as one of the most promising new faces in the Hindi movie business. The young actor has proved his worth with movies like 'Raazi', 'Sanju' and the latest one being 'Uri: The Surgical Strike'. The film has hit the jackpot at the Box Office and the 'josh' just refuses to die.

Noted film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and shared the details with fans. He wrote: #UriTheSurgicalStrike is unbeatable, unshakable and unstoppable... Sets a new record for Weekend 5... [Week 5] Fri 2.12 cr, Sat 4.67 cr, Sun 5.58 cr. Total: ₹ 212.78 cr. India biz. #Uri #HowsTheJosh

The film is on a record-breaking spree and has left behind the highly acclaimed 'Baahubali 2' Hindi version. “#UriTheSurgicalStrike⁠ ⁠creates HISTORY yet again... Smashes *Weekend 5* record held by #Baahubali2 [#Hindi]...

Day 29: #Baahubali2 ₹ 1.56 cr... #Uri ₹ 2.12 cr

Day 30: #Baahubali2 ₹ 2.25 cr... #Uri ₹ 4.67 cr

Day 31: #Baahubali2 ₹ 3.16 cr... #Uri ₹ 5.58 cr”

The movie has classic actors like Rajit Kapoor, Kirti Kulhari, Mansi Parekh Gohil, Swaroop Sampat and also marks 'Mahadev' actor Mohit Raina's debut launch.

'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.

It hit the screens on January 11, 2019, and clashed with Anupam Kher's 'The Accidental Prime Minister' at the Box Office.

A few days back, 'Uri: The Surgical Strike' was declared tax-free in Uttar Pradesh by Yogi Adityanath government.
