Vicky Kaushal's Uri: The Surgical Strike has managed to earn over Rs 212 crore at the domestic box office so far. Uri is also Vicky Kaushal's first Rs 100 crore movie in a leading role. However, he has also appeared as a supporting character in Ranbir Kapoor's Sanju and Alia Bhatt's Raazi, which had also grossed over Rs 100 crore and became a part of the Bollywood's coveted Rs 100 club.
Vicky Kaushal's movie has also collected more than the combined cost of its production and advertisements expenses within ten days of its release. Uri was made on a budget of nearly Rs 42 crore. Both critics and audience have praised debutant director Aditya Dhar, who has also written Uri, for his work.
Uri: The Surgical Strike is inspired by the real-life events of the Indian Army's surgical strikes at Line of Control (LoC). Apart from Vicky Kaushal, Uri: The Surgical Strike also features Yami Gautam and Paresh Rawal in key appearances.
