Vicky Kaushal on playing lead in his upcoming film, Uri

Actor Vicky Kaushal, who has had a great run at the movies this year with hits like Raazi and Manmarziyaan, said being under pressure keeps him moving.

The actor’s next film, Uri: The Surgical Strike, is inspired by true events. Vicky told reporters at the trailer launch of the film,

“I am lucky I am getting to be part of exciting projects. Every actor wants to test how strong they are. I am grateful to Ronnie Screwala (producer) for this opportunity. I want to be in this pressure zone. I would want to be under pressure,”

Directed by Aditya Dhar, the film is based on the Indian Army’s surgical strikes on Pakistan as retaliation for the Uri attack in 2016. He said,

“I learnt a lot when I read the script. I was very excited to tell the story. There is always an adrenaline rush to play a character like this. I was all charged up to do it right. We have seen films on war and military earlier, but this film will be new for the audience. India and Pakistan have often been shown fighting at the border, here we are showing how the surgical strike was carried out with the help of intelligence agencies and bureaucrats,”

Ironically, the role of a Special Forces commander-in-chief is a complete turnaround for the actor, who earned critical acclaim for his empathic portrayal of a Pakistani Army officer in Meghna Gulzar’s spy drama Raazi.Uri also features Paresh RawalYami Gautam and popular TV actor Mohit Raina, who is making his feature film debut, in key roles. The film is releasing in cinemas on 11th January 2019.
