We recently caught up with Uri actors Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam for a group chat. The actors spoke about the shooting the film, the surgical strike, the Indian army and many more. Read on to all they had to share:

When asked about the secret behind his versatility, Vicky Kaushal tells us,

“I think I have got opportunities to work with the versatile directors. But as an actor, everybody aims up taking different roles and do justice with each and every role. If the directors are guiding you then the half work is done by them and the other half is done by the actors.”

Talking about his preparation for his part as an army man, the Manmarziyaan fame actor said,

“It was the most exhausting role of my life. I have never done this many efforts for any other movie yet. I think 35 days out of 50 days were action days and were very very tiring and I always used to feel when is it going to end but today as the release date is coming near the strength is still double.”

When asked if they (Yami and Vicky) were completely aware of what all happened during the URI strike, the actors said:

Yami Gautam:

“I remember that everybody was angry when the URI attacks happened on our army – that was extremely brutal. When we heard from one of the soldiers who was there at the time of attack then we realized how hard it might be. Then we read the script and realized that how did it happened, and all the other information. We got to know that how so many department came together and worked on this project. And the important thing was that all these information was kept very secret and nobody knew about the planning and therefore it was successful.”

Vicky Kaushal:

“When the script of URI came to me, the actor in me was sitting behind me and firstly the Indian citizen in me wanted to know that what all exactly happened during the surgical strike. When I was reading the script page by page I got so many information. In the film also you will see how these 10 days journey was. I think everyone should once watch this movie to get the information about the journey of our army went through those days.”

Sharing her experience about the shooting days Yami says,

“While shooting at air force with the army all around us, I literally got goosebumps when I was actually watching the military chopper and just to watch it fly over your head. When you see around you see all the military. The pride comes to you that this is our military army.”

Directed by Aditya Dhar and produced by Ronnie Screwvala, URI: The Surgical Strike stars Vicky Kaushal, Paresh Rawal, Yami Gautam and Mohit Raina, the film is set to be released on January 11.
