Bollywood actress Yami Gautam, who plays a pivotal role in the film “Uri: The Surgical Strike”, says the filming process was exhausting yet enjoyable because of the participation and enthusiasm of the film’s cast and crew.

Some parts of the film, which is high on action, were shot in Serbia.

Yami told IANS here: “Shooting of such films is never easy, and is rather consuming. The same thing happened with me when I was shooting for my earlier film ‘Kaabil’ in which I had to learn dance and understand the body language of a visually challenged girl.

“The fact is, when my co-actors are giving by nature to get every scene right, and not working in isolation, the exhaustion becomes enjoyable for all the performers,” added Yami, who features in “Uri…” with Vicky Kaushal and Kirti Kulhari.

The teaser of the film was unveiled on September 28.

It is a movie on the Indian Army’s surgical strikes on the intervening night of September 28-29, 2016, eleven days after terrorists from Pakistan attacked a military base in Uri in Jammu and Kashmir leaving 19 Indian soldiers dead.

Yami Gautam says there was a lot of brainstorming on the set since the story is based on a real incident.

“We had to deal with it in an authentic and sensible manner, but I must say that every member on the set worked like one team. I am missing the set of ‘Uri’,” Yami added.

Directed by Aditya Dhar, the film will release on January 11, 2019. (IANS)

With “Uri: The Surgical Strike” crossing the Rs 200 crore mark, actress Yami Gautam, who plays an intelligence officer in the film, believes monetary success gives recognition but the long-time impact boils down to the content.

“I feel both good content and great box office go hand in hand. Of course if the film you are a part of becomes a success by its numbers, then you are given a certain amount of recognition. But I feel it all transpires what the film was about and what kind of content it represents,” Yami Gautam said in a statement to IANS.

The gritty drama, which traces the real-life events of the 2016 Uri attack and its aftermath, features Vicky Kaushal in the lead role. The film released on January 11, and continues to draw in the audience.

“With ‘Uri…’, the film had great content which drove people to the theatres week after week. And it’s amazing to see these numbers, not to be part of any club but just to know that people have over these weeks gone to see the film, even till date, almost a month after its release.

“Overall from a career perspective, box office numbers till the time they are genuine returns to the producers, is when there’s a true impact. Every film has different economics and no two films can be compared to each other simply by the extent of its box office only,” Yami Gautam added.

Besides Vicky and Yami Gautam, the film also features Paresh Rawal, Kirti Kulhari and debutante Mohit Raina. The film has been directed by Aditya Dhar and it has been produced by Ronnie Screwvala. (IANS)
