Yami Gautam, who is all set to feature in the Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Batti Gul Meter Chalu and Uri opposite Vicky Kaushal, just returned from a rather fun work-cation in Hong Kong.
Uri, based on the surgical strikes carried out by the Indian army after the Uri terrorist attack, will see Yami play an intelligence officer aiding Vicky and his band of special officers who carry out the tedious operation in the film, which is a tribute to all the soldiers who have put their country first, without a second thought.
Yami Gautam felt strongly inclined towards the role because she feels that not only should the soldiers be lauded, but also their families, who show supreme courage and support their family member who work tirelessly in the forces.
“Our jawans do so much for our country, I think it’s one of the most selfless and courageous deeds in the world. For them this is not just about a job, for them the country is their life and it is not entirely possible without your loving ones supporting you in this. We need to not only thank the defence forces but also their families for their selflessness.”
