Yami Gautam joins the cast of Uri
The project was announced last year with Vicky Kaushal as the male lead.
Actress Yami Gautam, who was last seen in Ram Gopal Varma’s Sarkar 3, has joined the cast of the forthcoming film Uri. Based on Indian Army's surgical strikes across the LoC, the movie also stars Vicky Kaushal and Kriti Kulhari in pivotal roles. Yami will play an intelligence officer in the film while Vicky will be seen in the character of a commander, who leads a group of paratroopers in the surgical strikes following terror attacks on the Indian Army camp in Uri in Kashmir.
"Aditya's passion about the film is infectious and the amount of extensive research he has done is amazing. I am really thrilled to be part of this film. This is the first time I am playing a role like this. I've been looking to do roles like this that represent the strength and courage of today's girls," Yami said in a statement.
