The trailer of RSVP’s upcoming war film ‘URI’ starring Vicky Kaushal has received applause from all quarters. Not just the viewers but also Bollywood celebrities have been hailing the power-packed performance of the actor and the hard-hitting storyline as “fabulous”. Bollywood celebrities like Alia Bhatt, Aanand L Rai, Anupam Kher, Rakul Preet, Mohit Suri amongst others gave a thumbs up to the trailer, according to sources close to the actor.
Vicky Kaushal will be seen donning the avatar of an army commando who heads the surgical strike in Uri. It’s for the first time that Vicky is seen in an all-out action avatar going all guns and screaming his lungs out by mouthing hard-hitting dialogues.
Seeing the trailer, here’s what the celebs say:
Alia Bhatt: “What a fabulous trailer!!!!!”

Based on Indian Army’s surgical strikes on terror launch pads across Line of Control (LoC), URI traces one of the most significant events of the history of the Indian Army. On September 18, 2016, 19 Indian soldiers were killed in an early morning attack by Pakistani terrorists at the 12 Infantry Brigade headquarters in Uri. In response, on September 29, the Indian Army’s Special Forces carried out surgical strikes on terror launch pads across Line of Control (LoC).
The teaser featured Vicky Kaushal in a revengeful avatar to avenge the death of his friend and fellow soldiers that laid their lives in the Pakistani terrorist attack. The power-packed trailer evokes a strong patriotic sentiment amongst the audience based against the backdrop of true events.
Produced by RSVP movies and directed by Aditya Dhar, the film has Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautam and Paresh Rawal in pivotal roles. The film is slated to release on January 11, 2019.
