Besides border, this was considered the second war film where it hit a heavy chord over the audience. Debutant director, Aditya Dhar brought a gripping story where the Indian army was shown avenging against the Uri attack. It was amazingly executed by Vicky Kaushal and Major Vihaan Singh Shergill which got them a place among the A- list actors. After this movie, Vicky Kaushal bagged many such projects. The movie showed a great amount of box office collection of over Rs 245 crore.
The Role of Ashwatthama
After such a grand success of Uri, the makers are looking forward to make again another such movie that creates magic even more than before. This time they are planning to do a war film which will be targeting a mid 2020 release. There is recent news from Mumbai Mirror for Vicky to soon be joining for an untitled project with Aditya and Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP. The movie is known to be centred on a mythological character named Ashwatthama who is the son of Guru Dronacharya and Kripi. We cannot wait for the upcoming box office hero Vicky Kaushal again to amaze us with his titular role.
The Next Major War Movie
But what was unknown to us is that that Aditya seemed to be working on the script much before Uri came to us. It has been known from a very close source to the project that as soon as Aditya brought the story to Ronnie and Vicky they instantly jumped on board and was excited to do something bigger and interesting than before. The shooting of the movie will be starting at the end of the year and the movie is happened to be done on a big scale.
Aditya even revealed about his next script that he is happened to be written for over eleven years. He was looking forward to create some magic with Raat baki and was planning to make it with Katrina Kaif and Fawad Khan but unfortunately for the recent Pakistani actors ban for the Uri attacks the film went on hold. Vicky Kaushal is going to be seen with Bhumi Padnekkar in the next horror-comedy movie. There are more in the line for Vicky in Karan Johar’s dream project Takht with multi starrer featuring Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Janhvi Kapoor. Vicky will be seen to working with Bhumi again in this. He is also lined up to be seen as Shaheed Udham Singh which will be directed by Shoojit Sircar.
