Mumbai: Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam starrer ‘Uri-The Surgical Strike’, which released on January 26 this year, will be re-released on July 26 on the occasion of Kargil Diwas.
The movie will be shown around 500 theatres in Maharashtra. The film is a war-drama in which Kaushal played the character of Major Vihaan Singh Shergill who heads a daring mission.

I’m honoured to be a part of this initiative where in Uri will be showcased across 500 theatres in the state on Kargil Vijay Diwas.”
