Watch: Uri actor Vicky Kaushal conducts surgical strike on film piracy through an innovative move

Online piracy has become a grave threat to filmmakers. They lose millions at the hands of offenders who leak the entire film on illegal sites within hours of its release. Interestingly, the makers of Uri: The Surgical Strike were prepared to challenge the piracy and fight the piracy sites that allowed viewers to skip the theater experience.

The Uri makers uploaded a fake video on the torrent claiming it to be the entire film. A viral video on Facebook shows someone downloading the 3.8GB torrent file, only to meet disappointment. The file only consisted a short clip of the lead characters mocking his efforts to watch the pirated version of film. The video ends with Vicky Kaushal saying they have conducted a surgical strike on our computer.

Uri: The Surgical Strike is emerging as a massive box office success within a few days of its release. The film is gaining momentum owing to positive reviews and a strong word of mouth, receiving appreciation from all quarters. Produced by RSVP Movies and directed by Aditya Dhar, the movie is based on the surgical strikes carried out by the Indian Army in 2016. The film also features Yami Gautam, Paresh Rawal, Kirti Kulhari and Mohit Raina in pivotal roles.
