URI Directs Speaks For The First Time On Plans To Re-Release His Film On Kargil Diwas



 This year’s first  blockbuster  the  war film URI  created  new boxoffice records and set the profit standards   for  the  rest  of  the year.

 While URI  has been  raking in the moolah and the recognition ,its young media-shy director Aditya Dhar had been travelling extensively across Europe  and America for  the past two months  writing   and  location hunting for his  next project.

I caught  up with Aditya  Dhar in Mexico .

He  was understandably pleased that his film has been selected  for Kargil Diwas  on Juy 27.

Says Aditya, “I am deeply honoured that URI is becoming a part of the Kargil Vijay Diwas celebrations on 26th July. It’s a wonderful initiative by our Honourable Chief Minister Devendra Fadanavis Sir to showcase the film in 500 locations across Maharashtra.”
 The proud yet  modest director hopes his film  would encourage more and  more  young people  to join the army. “I truly hope URI keeps motivating each and every Indian for generations to join hands in serving our nation to the best of their ability.”

 Reminiscing  fondly  over  the time when URI was being  shot Aditya says, “During the shoot of URI, my team and I would often dream aloud  that if we were able to inspire even a single person to join the Defence Services  after seeing the  film we would consider the purpose of making Uri served!!”

 Indeed URI has  hit home.

“Today we are flooded with so many messages, calls and e-mails from young Indians who were inspired by the film and decided to joined Our Armed Forces. It’s truly the greatest validation for any filmmaker to know that somewhere their work has got the youth of India to think about the bravery, valour and sacrifice of our brave soldiers and instill these very emotions in them,” concluded Aditya before getting lost in  the jungles of Mexico.
