In the third week of its release, Uri earned Rs 4.4o crore on Friday and Rs 9.75 crore on Saturday, taking its total current earnings to Rs 148.18 crore.

While most mid-budget films do not cross more than Rs 50 crore in lifetime earnings, Uri has been an exception. According to trade analysts, Uri crossed the Rs 50 crore mark in Mumbai alone and Rs 25 crore in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh territories.

It was previously reported that the opening week collection of Uri was higher than that of 2018 successes like Raazi, Stree, Badhaai Ho as well as Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety. It is also the first Hindi language film of 2019 to join the 100 crore club.

Directed by debutant Aditya Dhar, Uri: The Surgical Strike has been produced by Ronnie Screwvala under the banner of RSVP Movies.
