URI: The Surgical Strike is a military drama based on the real-life incident that took place in 2016 when the Indian Army conducted a surgical strike in Uri Kashmir.

Vicky Kaushal plays the lead in the film leading the operation alongside Yami Gautam who will be seen sharing the screen space as the female lead of the film. The film also stars Paresh Rawal, Kirti Kulhari and Mohit Raina in pivotal roles.

Yami Gautam will be seen in an all-new avatar playing the role of an Intelligence officer in the film. This would be the first time Yami will be seen in a character belonging to the armed forces, something she has never played before. To get into the skin of the character she had to shorten her hair to add authenticity into the look of an intelligence officer.

Talking about his experience in the world of showbiz, Vicky Kaushal said: "Being an engineer, I tore my job letter to give my entire attention to acting. Your backup can be your weakness, and thus to give those 2-3 per cent extra, I dropped my backup. Today, everybody is giving 100 per cent to everything, but with backup, you will lose the motivation to put in those extra efforts."
