Vicky Kaushal also praised his director Aditya Dhar, who made his directorial debut with Uri - The Surgical Strike. "I am really happy for the actors and director of the film because it is Adtiya's (Dhar) first film as a director. 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 audience appreciates the film then, it's really special thing for the entire team," said Vicky.
