After entering the coveted Rs 100 crore club in just 10 days, Aditya Dhar's directorial venture Uri: The Surgical Strike has now gone past the lifetime business of Alia Bhatt's hit film Raazi (Rs 123.84 crore). What's interesting is that Vicky Kaushal, who plays the lead in Uri, was also a part of Raazi which released last year and took everyone by surprise with its box office success. Coming back to the military drama, Uri fared well on day 13 and brought in Rs 6 crore according to BollywoodHungama. This means the total collection of Vicky and Yami Gautam starrer now stands at Rs 128.59 crore which is absolutely fantastic. Uri: The Surgical Strike Box Office Collection Day 12: Vicky Kaushal's Film Is on High Josh, Rakes in Rs 122.59 Crore.
After Raazi, Uri is now set to surpass the lifetime collection of Rajkummar Rao's Stree and Ayushmann Khurrana's Badhaai Ho. While the total collection of Rajkummar starrer stands at Rs 130 crore, Ayushmann's comedy-drama minted a total of Rs 134 crore at the Indian box office. Knowing how Uri has been performing at the ticket windows, the film will surpass Stree and Badhaai Ho today itself or in worst case scenario by tomorrow.
Uri: The Surgical Strike, which released on January 11, also stars Paresh Rawal and television actor Mohit Raina in important roles. Despite opening to not-so-great reviews, Uri stormed the box office on day 1 and since then has been drawing the audience to the cinema halls. Apart from being the first blockbuster of 2019, Vicky's film has also become the most successful medium budget film of recent times.

As per BoxOfficeIndia.com, Uri is now competing with last year's blockbuster Sanju in terms of daily collection. The trade portal states, "Sanju the biggest grosser of 2018 had grossed 6.26 crore nett on its second Wednesday which was the highest second Wednesday of 2018 and Uri - The Surgical Strike is not too far off that. Basically, the film has now started to compete with Sanju in terms of daily collections and it could start to beat it very soon, maybe from Thursday itself."
