Vicky Kaushal will next be seen in Uri: The Surgical Strike which is directed by debutante Aditya Dhar who will make his debut as director with this action-thriller. The trailer of the film was released a while ago which gave a sneak peek into what the film would be all about raising our excitement.
However, director Aditya Dhar reveals that Uri wouldn’t have been made in the first place and his debut film would have been a different one. “I was doing a film with Fawad Khan. But the moment we were supposed to go on the floor for the film, Uri attack happened because of which Pakistani actors were banned and Fawad was not allowed to come back and the film went into the limbo,” said Aditya Dhar. The young filmmaker also reveals that being a Kashmiri himself urged him to opt for terrorism as the subject for the film.
“So, while everyone was trying to figure out whom to cast and what to do about the film, I was more interested in to figure out what exactly happened during the surgical strike. Considering I’m a Kashmiri Pandit and I have been hearing about the terror attack since childhood. We have been directly or indirectly affected by the terrorism and also because I wanted to get into the army.
This was something which I have a little bit of knowledge about the dynamics of the terrorism and what all army has to go through in Kashmir. So I already had an interest in it and while researching about the surgical strike I got stuck on this topic.
Indian Army does so much for our country and this is the least that as a filmmaker we can do for them,” Aditya added.
