This film just shows what happened behind the closed doors and how it all happened, how it all took place, all teams came together and all of that. That’s Uri for you,” he had stated.

We have had good times, shaky times and bad times and again good times. It always fluctuates, the friction comes and goes. Uri is based on an incident that left a deep impact on us as citizens of this country.”
