At the inauguration of the film museum at the NFDC on Saturday Prime Minister Modi threw the catchphrase ‘How’s Your Josh?’ from the film Uri on the enchanted and amused audience.
What better endorsement could the film have hoped for?
Says the stunned director Aditya Dhar, “It’s one of the best validations any filmmaker can ever get!! The PM of the largest democracy in the world is a mouthing dialogue I have written!! Never had I thought while writing it that this line will become a national crazy. Everybody is saying it with lot of pride and patriotism in their heart!! I truly feel honoured!! I have only gratitude in my heart!!”
The line , ‘How’s your josh?’ comes from a long-remembered never-forgotten memory in the director’s consciousness.
Says Aditya , “I remember an Army office using it when I was a kid!! Got stuck at the back of my mind. Remembered it after so many years also.”
Uri which opened on 11 January has acquired blockbuster status since release. The film is expected to cross the 100-crore revenue mark this week.
