Vicky Kaushal's latest film, "Uri: The Surgical Strike", is on a record-breaking run at the box office and the actor believes that from now on he cannot take things for granted. The actor has received critical praise for his performances in films such as "Sanju" and "Manmarziyaan", among others. Vicky started 2019 with a bang with "Uri", which is still running to packed houses.
When asked how does he view his recent blockbuster success, Vicky told reporters, "You say that to yourself that now is the time you can't take anything for granted. You've to keep working hard, harder and hardest. It feels so special."
Uri: The Surgical Strike, the first bona fide box-office hit of 2019, is the first box-office century for Vicky as a lead star. Based on the 2016 Surgical Strikes conducted by the Indian Army against the Pakistani terror launchpads across the Line of Control, Uri: The Surgical Strike is written and directed by debutant Aditya Dhar. The film also features Paresh Rawal, Yami Gautam, Mohit Raina, Rajit Kapur and Kirti Kulhari in important roles.
The film, produced by Ronnie Screwvala under his film production banner of RSVP Movies, received mixed reviews upon its release on January 11. The audience’s verdict was largely in its favour though.
