After playing an army officer in Raazi, Vicky Kaushal dons the uniform one more time for Aditya Dhar's patriotic drama Uri. Kaushal looks earnest and aggressive as the Indian commander-in-chief who led a group of paratroopers in the 2016 surgical strikes following terror attacks on the Indian Army camp in Uri, Kashmir.

Reported as "the deadliest attack on security forces in Kashmir in two decades," the pre-planned ambush claimed the lives of 17 army personnel. The trailer begins with a funeral where the slain army men are being cremated with state honours. Moment later, a distraught yet determined Kaushal requests his superior to let him take charge of the force in certain volatile areas of Jammu and Kashmir.

Displaying extraordinary leadership skills, Kaushal trains his soldiers and leads them into Pakistan to conduct covert surgical strikes. He is aided by Yami Gautam, a hard-nosed intelligence officer who makes an appearance in a rather violent scene. Kirti Kulhari also makes a brief appearance in the trailer as Seerat, a fighter pilot with the Indian Air Force. She is chosen to fly the Indian troops into Pakistan by Kaushal's commander.

Produced by Ronnie Screwvala, Uri scheduled to hit the theatres on 11 January, 2019.
