Aditya Dhar's directorial venture Uri: The Surgical Strike has already been declared a blockbuster but the film is yet to end its theatrical run. The Military drama, starring Vicky Kaushal in the lead, came out in theatres exactly two months ago and impressed the audience big time. No wonder, it's still minting money at the ticket windows and refuses to slow down. After entering the coveted Rs 200 crore club and becoming the highest grossing film in the medium-budget category, Uri is now heading towards Rs 250 crore mark in India which is absolutely incredible.
