Aditya Dhar, the director of the film, said, “The greatest validation for any filmmaker is to know that he has inspired youngsters to think about the valor and sacrifice it’s a wonderful initiative by our Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and I’m glad people will get to see the film for free this time.”
Producer Ronnie Screwvala confirms the news, adding that the core intention behind making a film like Uri: The Surgical Strike was to inculcate a sense of pride in every Indian’s heart, especially owing to the selfless service provided by the Indian Army personnel.
Recently, Vicky Kaushal had shared a heartfelt message from a young fan of him and the film who revealed that he was inspired to join the Indian Army after watching the film and just wanted to make his love and respect known for the cast and crew of the film before his training next week.
