Vicky Kaushal’s Uri: The Surgical Strike has achieved something which is beyond box office numbers. After Border, this is the second war film, which struck a chord with the audience and brought out a strong wave of patriotism. The gripping story of the Indian Army avenging the Uri attack was executed amazingly by debutant director Aditya Dhar and it showed in its box office collection of over Rs 245 crore. Not just that, the film where Vicky Kaushal was seen as Major Vihaan Singh Shergill, earned him a place amongst the A-list stars. He also bagged many big projects and rightly so.
In fact, the making was such a rewarding process that the makers are planning to reunite to create the magic again, this time with a period-war film, targetting a mid-2020 release. Vicky will soon collaborate with Aditya and Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP for an untitled project that will revolve around the mythological character Ashwatthama, the son of guru Dronacharya and Kripi. Needless to say, Vicky will play the titular role.
A source close to the project told the publication, “After Uri, the makers wanted to return with something big and interesting. Aditya has been working on this script since a long time, even before Uri released, and when he sounded out Ronnie and Vicky, they immediately jumped on board. The film will be mounted on a big scale and will be shot later this year.”
Vicky even took to his Insta stories and confirmed the same!
