Actor Vicky Kaushal has taken to Instagram to share a heartfelt note thanking his audience for turning a mere dialogue from his film into a rage. The actor’s one-line dialogue, ‘How’s The Josh’ from Uri: The Surgical Strike has become a part of popular culture and is being used by the people everywhere from home, colleges, schools to offices and even in the parliament.
Vicky wrote that the love from the audience has turned this dialogue into an emotion. He said, ” It’s not just a line anymore… I get so many “How’s the Josh?!” videos from you all everyday, each one made with so much love and passion, from schools, colleges, cafes, work places… from people fighting the cold in minus temperatures to people sweating it out in the gym… from conference meetings to marriage ceremonies… from a 92 years old grandmother to a 2 years old kid… from even our Jawaans in the armed forces. It’s not just a line anymore, you all have turned it into an emotion… an emotion so strong and special, I’m going to cherish for life. Thank You everyone. इस प्यार और सम्मान के लिए तहे दिल से शुक्रिया। ❤️” (sic)
Just a day ago, interim Finance Minister Piyush Goyal used the line while presenting the Union Budget in the parliament. Several videos surfacing on the internet show people using the line in their day-to-day life. Recently, even Vicky got a thumping response from people at the Wagah Border when he asked them ‘How’s The Josh’. The film is going from strength to strengths at the Box Office and is close to reaching Rs 200 crore at the Box Office.
Earlier, talking about receiving love from the audience, Vicky told Pinkvilla, “It is always good to be at the receiving end of so much love from the audiences because that validation is so so special for you as an artist. It gives you so much encouragement and so much motivation to just give your best. Every artist is looking for a year like that and I feel blessed to have gotten the opportunity to work with the kind of directors I got to work with and back to back. It was an immensely enriching and learning experience for me to hop on to such incredible projects.”
