Despite not opening to rave reviews, Uri has been ruling the box office since it released in theatres on January 11. Co-starring Yami Gautam, Paresh Rawal, and television actor Mohit Raina, the film which is directed by Aditya Dhar is also having golden run at the overseas box office. In just three weeks, the military drama surpassed the $ 5 million mark and is still getting cash registers ringing which is absolutely phenomenal. Though many films arrived after Uri, none of them affected its business including Kangana Ranaut's ambitious project Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi.
