Grateful For The Hard Work, Failure And National Awards Says Aditya Dhar

Filmmaker Aditya Dhar is over the moon, as his action drama “URI – The Surgical Strike” has fetched not just one but three National Awards in various categories. The filmmaker says he is grateful for the struggle and reward it fetched.

The action drama based on real life mission undertaken by Indian armed forces post Pulwama attack. The film is a dramatised account of the retaliation to the 2016 Uri attack. It follows Major Vihaan Singh Shergill of the Indian Army, who plays a leading role in the events.

The film has fetched Best Actor Award for Vicky Kaushal, Best Director Award for Aditya Dhar and Best Sound Designer Award.

Sharing his excitement for the 66th National Award win, filmmaker said, “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm. 15 years of failures, rejections and hard work has lead to this moment and it just can’t get better than this”

“Thank you India, thank you Ministry of Information & Broadcasting and all the Jury members of National Award committee for considering me worthy enough for this prestigious award. This is an honour I am going to cherish for the rest of my life”

“Being conferred with the National Award has been a dream since the time I understood what films meant to me, and films truly mean the world to me.  Thanks to my family and friends for their unconditional support over the years. The way my parents and my brother stood by me through the entire struggle is what helped me realise my dream so beautifully. Thank you Ronnie Screwvala and my entire team of URI for giving it all and making URI what it is. This film wouldn’t have been possible without the mad obsession of each one of you to create something extraordinary for our audience”

Further adding, Aditya said, “But most importantly I am dedicating this award to each and every brave soldier of our country and their families. Thank you for all your sacrifices. You have selflessly dedicated your life to serve us and now it’s our time to dedicate everything we have to serve you. Jai Hindi!! PS- HOW’S THE JOSH???  VERY VERY HIGH SIR!!”

Film starred Vicky Kaushal, Paresh Rawal, Mohit Raina, and Yami Gautam in lead roles.
