New Delhi: The ‘josh’ is back as Maharashtra state government has announced the re-release of Vicky Kaushal starrer ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike” for today in the state to commemorate Kargil Vijay Diwas.
Maharashtra Government’s decision comes in wake of the 20th anniversary of India’s triumph in the Kargil war.
So, all those who missed watching the film on the big screen can now relish it for free in 500 theatres today in Maharashtra!
Kaushal, who led the film as Major Vihaan Singh Shergill, expressed his happiness over Instagram.
“Happy and honoured to share that our Film #UriTheSurgicalStrike will be re-released only for today, July 26th, to commemorate ‘Kargil Vijay Diwas’,” he wrote.
