Talking about the grand success, actress Yami Gautam said, “No matter how much gratitude I have towards our Army, it will always be less. During the shooting and promotion of the film, I got the privilege of meeting our Army men every other day. They made me realise the real value of hard work. Their honesty, hard work and sacrifices inspired me to put my best into the film.
“They stand for us, they fight for us. We exist because of them. I salute them and their families for always supporting them in every crucial situation. Through ‘Uri…’, I wanted to make them feel proud. And now that the film is doing so well, without any second thought, I want to give the credit of the film’s success to our brave Army men and their families.” Also starring Mohit Raina, Paresh Rawal and Kirti Kulhari, the film is directed by Aditya Dhar and produced under the banner of RSVP.
