“Even the youth knows what happened, so do the elders. It just happened two years back and we all saw it on TV or read it in newspapers and we were affected by it. 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.
Adding, “India and Pakistan have always been conflicting entities and we really hope that citizens of both countries hope for better future and better brotherhood among the countries. 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.”
Uri is director Aditya Dhar’s directorial debut and is produced by Ronnie Screwvala under the banner of RSVP Movies.
