Mumbai: Actor Vicky Kaushal, who is playing the role of an Indian commando in the recently released ‘Uri – The Surgical Strike’, has said the entire film team is going through a surreal feeling that audience has accepted their war-drama film with open arms.
Vicky was interacting with media after success of ‘Uri…’ along with his co-stars Mohit Raina and Yami Gautam here, Saturday. The movie is based on the 2016 Indian Army’s surgical strikes inside Pakistan as a retaliation for the Uri terrorist attack.
The film has managed to collect Rs 8.20 crore at the box-office after first day of its release, sources said.
“Till the film is released, you don’t have an idea if it is going to work. But since yesterday (Friday), the kind of reaction we have received is really overwhelming. It’s a surreal feeling that audience has accepted our film with open arms,” said Vicky.
Vicky also praised his co-actors and director Aditya Dhar for being part of the film. “I am really happy for the actors and director of the film because it is Adtiya’s (Dhar) first film as a director,” he pointed out.
“In today’s age, it is very difficult for a debutant director to get backing from producers for the story and then get a huge release for his film. Ultimately, when the audience appreciates the film then, it’s really special thing for the entire team,” added the actor.
