Bollywood actor Vicky Kaushal is basking in the glory of his latest outing Uri: The Surgical Strike. The film has been declared as a blockbuster at the Box Office, earning Rs 200 crore in its fourth week.

The overwhelming response from the critics and the audience has left lead actor Vicky Kaushal emotional.

On Saturday, Vicky shared a BTS video showcasing the journey of the film. He shared a beautiful note thanking the Uri team for the contribution.

He wrote, “Your helmets, your gears, your guns… you hold on to like your life depends on them. This was one army rule we all strictly lived by, through the Shoot of the Film. Once in costume, each and every one of us was responsible for our own gears.”

“Somedays I would wake up with my right index finger already bent imitating to pull the trigger. Those night shoots full of intense action, of course, were peppered with some fun banter and laughs in between shots amongst the boys, where our director @adityadharfilms would also join us,” Vicky recalled.

The actor also thanked the audience for keeping the ‘josh’ high and loving the film.

“All of this feels worth it, with the generous love the Film is getting from you all. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for keeping the Josh so high,” he said.

Your helmets, your gears, your guns… you hold on to, like your life depends on them. This was one army rule we all strictly lived by, through the Shoot of the Film. Once in costume, each and every one of us was responsible for our own gears. You wear them or hold them, it’s going to be with you through the span of the Shoot for that day. Our pockets would be full of protein bars, nuts and bags with bottles of energy drinks, because deep in those jungles sometimes no food trolleys or spot team were allowed to reach. Somedays I would wake up with my right index finger already bent imitating to pull the trigger. Those night shoots full of intense action, ofcourse were peppered with some fun banter and laughs in between shots amongst the boys, where our director @adityadharfilms would also join us. All of this feels worth it, with the generous love the Film is getting from you all. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for keeping the Josh so high. Also, a big shout out to the wonderful set of co-actors I got to work with, that formed our SF team. Dhairya, Guru, Padam, Sparta, Dang, James, Rahul, Nishant, Tashi, Anurag, Himanshu, Beant, Sapru Saab, Gagan, Dev.
